Artists for World Peace returns from Tanzanian eyesight mission | The Middletown Press

Wendy Black-Nasta, founder of Artists for World Peace, has returned to her hometown after three weeks in the village of Kibosho-Umbwe, near Moshi, Tanzania, in the Kilimanjaro region.

She and her 10-member team, including three eye-care professionals, three volunteers and a four-person documentary crew, set up a six-day eye clinic, offering free screening and eyeglasses to nearly 800 people, some of who traveled more than 50 kilometers (31 miles) to be seen.

The services were provided in the health services building that Artists for World Peace had helped build, funded through events in Middletown and on Broadway over the past eight years.
