Thanks to your support, Dr. Jonathan Pons (Jono to his friends) gives sight to hundreds of people each year.
The Good Shepherd Eye Service was started in 1998 by Dr. Jonathan Pons in partnership with the Good Shepherd Hospital and cbm. Dr. Pons is the only full-time, practising ophthalmologist in Swaziland.
He was honoured in 2016 by the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) as an Eye Health hero.
“What I love about my role is being a small part of the international solution to eliminate avoidable blindness! I can’t think of a more satisfying occupation and I love that I get to have patients who go home – not in a coffin – but with joy.”
– Dr. Pons
