VOSH (Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity): An international non-profit, founded in 1971, on a mission to "bring vision to every person on the planet".
They provide different volunteers/student charters with the necessary materials to travel to underprivileged parts of the world and provide assistance and treatment.
We are donating reading glasses to the Southern College of Optometry (SCO) Chapter in Tennessee and plan on going on a trip with them next year to help in any way we can. the SVOSH SCO chapter is one of the largest student volunteer chapters of the VOSH organization.
"As of 2015, SVOSH at SCO has completed 150 total trips to 16 countries, examined over 229,000 patients, and distributed over 177,000 pairs of glasses. It has been conservatively estimated that our donated services are worth over 20 million dollars!"
So glad to help with such a well structured and life changing program. The future is CLEAR :)
Have a great weekend everyone.
