The Rotary Club of Dominica in collaboration with VOSH International and the Ministry of Health is once again preparing for the upcoming annual VOSH Eye Care Mission in Dominica. VOSH, which stands for Voluntary Optometric Services to Humanity, is an international voluntary organisation with various chapters based in the United States, to execute its mission to provide vision and quality eye health to people worldwide.
The VOSH Michigan Chapter headed by Dr. Daniel Wrubel has organised eye care missions to Dominica for the past 25 years, facilitated by the Rotary Club of Dominica and the Ministry of Health. The VOSH 2020 mission will run from January 20th – 23rd, 2020.
