Enlightening Eyes in Eswatini – Vol. 1.4 – Christmas

Update from Jono Pons, MD

December 2023

Dear COS Family,

This year as our mission grew, we have indeed served and witnessed far and wide, serving people of Eswatini, South Africa, Sudan and Mozambicans. Sometimes in hot deserts, consulting in a tent, or with troublesome equipment, but always with big crowds. This year has been different to the past, as I’ve known more deeply than ever, that standing behind me are my brothers and sisters of Christian Ophthalmology Society, watching over me in prayer and helping us provide for growing eye care needs with material support. The Spirit’s power is evident in the lives changed, whilst your steadfast support has lifted me up and blessed so many already. Thank-you COS family!

Caring for the Most Vulnerable with Love

My most memorable moment this year was working 5 of the longest days ever with the OneSight Team to give free glasses to so many people in a short time. Blessing the community made me proud of this work.

I will remember my time with Dr Pons team as very warm and caring, lovely people who always try to make it work even with limited resources. The team is creative and cares about each patient. They have a ‘can do’ mentality!

Working with Grace Vision to support more affordable and charitable care means that every day I know I am contributing to a better life for someone who is in need. I am proud to work with Dr Pons as we serve all clients equally.

Mr Tatenda Marawanyika,

Blessings and Thanks,
