In Angola Operation Miracle Reaches with Cuban aid
The clinic built with Cuban aid is two thirds serviceable since April. It has tended over 11,000 cases, including 1,300 surgery, but full-blown can operate on some 100,000 cases yearly.

Dos Santos was accompanied by Cuban Health Ministry Jose Ramon Balaguer and Cuban Ambassador Pedro Ross.

Operation Miracle, a humanitarian program Cuba devised and co-runs with Venezuela, has so far given free eye medical service to over one million people at 32 countries.

This is the second such eye facility in Africa. Mali hosts the first since 2007 that so far scores over 7,700 beneficiaries, both nationals and from Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and D.R. of Congo.

Cuban Council of States member, Dr. Elia Rosa Lemus, says the clinic has cutting-edge technology and the staff, mostly Cubans, will train locals to improve the shortage of specialists.
