Magsaysay team’s trip

KATHMANDU: Roman Magsaysay Award Foundation Board trustees, staff and a slew of Magsaysay awardees on Friday went to Fulari eye camp and watched Dr Sanduk Ruit, this year’s Magsaysay winner, in action. The team visited Tilganga Eye Centre early in the morning and observed the lens lab for which the centre is known the world over. “The services rendered by the centre is highly impressive,” said Emily Abrera, head of the Foundation. Abrera, along with 27 other personalities associated with the foundation, are participating in the 2006 Magsaysay Awardees’ Conference being held in the capital from November 23-26. — HNS
