Why a Bolivian Eye Clinic Now Bears President Thomas S. Monson's Name

When members of the Church in La Paz, Bolivia, go to the High Complexity Eye Bank Laboratory, they might be surprised to find a familiar name posted on the building.

A public eye clinic in Bolivia's largest city now bears the name of the Church's 16th president, President Thomas S. Monson.

The High Complexity Eye Bank Laboratory in La Paz was recently renamed for President Monson in recognition of the Church making a substantial donation of medical equipment to the facility, according to the Church's website in Bolivia.

The equipment—which includes much-needed surgical tools and high-tech microscopes—will help improve the vision and eye health of more than 10,000 Bolivians.
