Looking for a VOSH team to help in Ethiopia

FROM: Roger Clapp Himalayan Cataract Project 57 So Main St. PO Box 55, VT Waterbury/05676 United States rclapp@cureblindness.org Himalayan Cataract Project works to eradicate preventable and curable blindness through high quality ophthalmic care, education and the establishment of a world class eye care infrastructure. Recently we’ve been working on biometry with our local implementing partner community hospitals in Ethiopia to improve patients eyesight after receiving cataract surgery. A donor who is a practicing optometrist suggested that we contact you to explore possible collaboration. From your website, it looks like most, if not all of your volunteer opportunities are in Mexico, Central America, South America or the Carribean where HCP is not yet working. However there was a 2014 posting of a VOSH Corp opportunity in Ethiopia. I wondering if you have any affiliates there and if there would be any opportunity for collaboration. Thank you. Roger...

Date: 28 November 2016 Name: John Avudria Email: javudria@gmail.com Please tell us in which category to post your message: We are looking for a VOSH team to come to our area What would you like your message to say?: We cannot be thankful enough for VOSH team that visited two Hospitals in West Nile Region in Northern Uganda a few years ago. The Mission was so successful and the demand for eye care services exceeded the resources. Recently, there has been influx of refugees from South Sudan & DR Congo that has overwhelmed resources in the West Nile region. South Sudan is a region infested with Black Flies that cause River Blindness.   Healthcare facilities in the West Nile districts cannot cope with demand for health services. We are are a small charitable organization known as Nile Care Inc (www.Nilecareinc.org). We are looking for a VOSH chapter that is willing to team with us to Visit Arua & Maracha Hospitals one more time.
