Thank You

Thank you for choosing to make a donation to VOSH/International.  Since 1971, hundreds of clinics are held annually serving millions of poverty stricken people throughout the world.  Members of V/I are volunteers who give up their practices or workplace for weeks and travel at their own expense to provide eye care to those who have little to no access to such care.  Because of a highly efficient infrastructure of elected officers, VOSH/International is diligently working towards the objective of VISION2020.

Donations go directly to support eye care projects, equipment for mission trips,  sustainable eye clinics at schools of optometry and clinics in developing nations and the restoration of used equipment for educational purposes and use in eye clinics through V/I’s Technology Transfer Program (TTP).

The following people or organizations have made generous donations to VOSH/International.
