The VOSH Eye Care Mission of the Rotary Club begins on Monday, January 20th with a slight change to one clinic location.
VOSH, Voluntary Optometric Services to Humanity, is an international voluntary organisation with various chapters based in the United States aimed at providing vision and quality eye health to people worldwide.
The mission dates and clinics are as follows:
On Monday, January 20th the mission will be at the Marigot SDA Church; on Tuesday, January 21st at the Castle Bruce Health Centre and not the Salybia Health Centre as previously announced.
On Wednesday and Thursday January 22nd and 23rd, the mission will be at the Goodwill Parish Hall.
Those wishing to attend the VOSH clinics are advised that a ticketing system has been put in place to ensure that operations run smoothly.
Each patient must have been pre-screened at their respective health centers prior to the mission to receive a ticket and only persons that have been pre-screened and have the correct tickets will be allowed entry at the various clinics.
A monetary contribution will be required from persons receiving glasses.
