6 de Marzo de 2008 San Francisco de Coray, Coray, Valle Honduras

Today was an incrediable day, to get to San Francisco de Coray, Coray we had to drive over an hour on a road from "hell". But when we arrived at the local public community center, we were shocked to find over 400 people waiting for us.

We were only able to see 180 patients and we founf 17 that need cataract surgery and 5 that need ptygerium surgeries.

But we promised to return. This is by far the poorest area that we have been in!
