Each year, he helps organize medical mission trips to Panama and other countries in Central America. Accompanied by his wife Vickie, other volunteer medical staff, and lay volunteers from his church, Dr. Burcham performs over 70 cataract surgeries on each trip. The patients walk for miles to receive this free care which would otherwise be unavailable to them. Many are blind and are given the blessed gift of sight.
