Issa Trust Foundation, the non-profit arm of Couples Resorts, recently completed its 13th paediatric medical mission in the parishes of Westmoreland and Hanover. Free medical and eye clinics were conducted in Grange Hill, Savanna-la-Mar, Lucea and Negril. A team of 43 dedicated volunteer doctors, nurses and support staff from around the US treated 921 children, filled 1,131 prescriptions and provided 107 glasses to children in great need.
