Health Care Services Director Dr Laura Esprit says the VOSH Eye Care Mission coordinated by the Rotary Club of Dominica, was successful, as “the patients are the direct beneficiaries”. This 23rd VOSH Mission assisted Dominicans across the country from Monday, 16th to 19th January 2017.
Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity (VOSH) International is a non-governmental, non-sectarian, apolitical organization, dedicated to the provision of eye and vision care services, for persons who are below the poverty level, and without access to local eye care. Their goal is to help people see again, by correcting their vision with glasses.
The VOSH team, under the Management of Dr. Dan Wrubel provided eye and vision care services this week, to clinics in the communities of La Plaine, Castle Bruce, Salybia, Pointe Michel, Mahaut, and Goodwill.
On average over 1,500 people receive complete eye examinations each year, and most receive prescription eyeglasses and “sun shades”. Persons who received glasses were required to make a minimum contribution of $25.
