VOSH Dominica for Steve Rathbun for 2017 Trip
Organized by: Steve Rathbun
In 2015 I went on a mission trip to the Island nation of Dominica that our Optomitrist is in charge of. VOSH, or Voluntary Optometric Services for Humanity, partially sponsered by the Rotary Club. The group consists of about 35 people, from Optomitrists, medical assistents, Optometry students, Opticians, and non-medical personel. I was one of the non-medical personel to provide basic vision screening to the citizens of Dominica. We provided services to over 1500 citizens over 4 days in the various regions of Dominica. In going on this short term mission trip, I found out what the meaning of giving truely means. This was an experience that I would like to perform again. However, due to the cost of $2000, I will require assistance to fund my mission trip. Thank to all in advance, who wishes to assist me in my endeavor.
