INTRODUCTION

Working in a Foundation (stichting.) needs determination, devotion and time-sacrificing. Many contacts, by different available legal means, have to be conducted to keep the work running. Mutual discussion as well as on site visits have to be performed to induce others to participate in any possible contribution according to availability.

Such activity requires a lot of administration, efforts and, sometimes, physical work to bring donated materials. Mr. Henk Kral, St. MORI secretaris and accountant has shown a lot of the mentioned activities.

In addition to various types of contributions in St. MORI-activities, many advices and ideas have been made and suggested by Mr. Hansbroek (OogMerk Optics-Groningen), Mr. Vriend (VriendOptics-Groningen), Mr. Pop(KompleetOptics-Apeldoorn), PearleOptics-Amersfoort, Mr. Beste (Ootech-lamires-Niewegein) and Dr. Ensink, Ophthalmologist (ex. Isala-Kliniken-Zwolle). Their contribution has made St. MORI-activities possible and the objectives achievable. Some activities were not realized without their generous hands.

St. MORI-activities include Para Medical, Medical/Ophthalmological and Optical service (and medication/glasses supplies upon availability) in developing countries world-wide. These activities are designed on world-wide scale taking the Netherlands as a base for action and function. Recently academic and scientific prospective developments have been included in St. MORI-activities. These prospectives are within the general objective of raising the eye welfare system in developing countries.

A new development in St. MORI activities is that St. MORI has contributed in international clinical and scientific events abroad via dr. Hassan as well as he finished writing a book in Electro-Ophthalmology Diagnosis. Also St. MORI is open to volunteers to develop expertise and to cover possible future activities.

Sponsoring and material necessary to realise St. MORI-objectives have to be reached by applying to different resources locally and abroad.

c- ACADEMIC and SCIENTIFIC DEVELOPMENTS :

In January/February. 2006. Dr. HASSAN has attended the Moroccane Ophthalmology Congress in Marakesch. This has led to promote and start an Electro-Ophthalmology Unit (E.O.U.) at the department of Ophthalmology-B, head of the department; Prof. A. Berahho, the University Medical Centre, C.H.U., in Rabat in collaboration with Ronald Consult Company, Mr. J. Finger, from Germany. A Ronald Consult Ophthalmic Electro-Diagnostic system has been installed at the department. E.O.U. aims at prognosis, diagnosis and follow up of specific eye diseases as related to the visual pathway starting from the retina. This is to offer better service to eye and the visual system to raise the eye welfare system in an attempt to prevent/delay/postpone blindness. St. MORI has intermediated in this project where dr. Hassan has carried out successful installation of the system, onsite training of personnel and had conducted many lectures and presentation related to techniques, methods and handling procedures of required tests which must be performed by the system.

At the Ophthalmology Department, operating theatre Dr. Hassan has contributed in surgical sessions in collaboration with other colleagues and supervision of Mrs. prof. Berahho.

St.MORI has been presented in international conferences in Glasgow and London via the presentations of dr. Hassan where many contacts had been carried out for possible mutual collaboration to achieve St. MORI objectives. As a result there might be a possibility to promote and deliver more help in Ophthalmic Service both in Medical as well as Surgical managements. These might be realized via collaboration with potential producers and manufacturers.
