Eye Bank Foundation’s Medical Facility Celebrates 24th Anniversary
Established on October 16, 1995, the Santa Lucia International Eye Bank of Manila (SLIEB) celebrated its 24th anniversary this October 2019. The SLIEB serves as the medical facility owned and operated by the Eye Bank Foundation dedicated to the collection, processing, evaluation, storage and equitable distribution of high quality cornea/eye tissues for transplant, research and education.
As an act of gratitude for God’s unceasing faithfulness to the Foundation and its medical facility, Eye Bank’s rank-and-file celebrated the 24th anniversary through a mass at the Philippine General Hospital’s Chapel.
Eye Bank’s current policy thrust is to strengthen the Hospital Retrieval Program and voluntary donation by increasing awareness and education to the general public. Likewise, it also aims to have nationwide presence in line with the facility’s Silver Anniversary next year. #EyeBankPH#PartnersInSight
