Million Dollar Round Table
February 5, 2021
The Million Dollar Round Table Foundation awarded World Cataract Foundation a $3,500 grant. This grant will be used toward the purchase of Kitaro Lab Kits to be used in an ophthalmology training program in Port au Prince, Haiti. Kitaro Lab Kits are valuable training tools used to master cataract surgery.
The MDRT Foundation was created in 1959 to provide MDRT members with a means to give back to their communities. Since its inception, the Foundation has donated more than $38 million in more than 72 countries throughout the world and in all of 50 US states. These funds were raised by MDRT members and industry partners. One of the conditions of applying for a grant is that a MDRT member must submit a letter of recommendation for the organization and the project. Emeritus Director of World Cataract Foundation and MDRT member, K.C. Lam, CLU, ChFC, CFP, provided the letter of recommendation.
