This was also the first time cataract operations are being performed in Hospital Beaufort using the portable eye surgery equipment, donated by Sabah Credit Corporation with which the Club is a partner in service. The lenses are sponsored through the Rotary Global Grant 1642940 “Gift of Sight – Sabah”.
