Aisha Simjee, MD, is beloved and highly respected in the Southern California medical community as a board-certified, fellowship-trained and compassionate ophthalmologist. She has received considerable recognition for her charitable work locally and globally.
Here is a snippet of her book "Hope in Sight" regarding her volunteer experience in Huancavelica, Peru:
"Mission work takes more than a desire to travel to distant and exotic lands. It requires a strong commitment and sacrifice by anyone volunteering aid. In the weeks following my return from Huancavelica, Peru, I reflected on my time there and the logistical and physical challenges I faced to provide much-needed medical care. I have no regrets about going, in spite of some extremely harsh working conditions."
