VOSH & Rotary Portsmouth together at Portsmouth Hospital

VOSH (Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity), whose objective is to improve the sight and well-being of visually impoverished people throughout the world , is a volunteer group of Opthomologists from the University of Opthomology in Michigan, U.S.A.

For the past 20 years, working in close cooperation with Rotary Club Dominica in Roseau, VOSH has held their annual clinics for Dominicans. Their project leader, Dr. Dan Wrubel from the U.S.A., has  organized and led the annual missions without fault.

On Monday 13th of January,2014,  Rotary Club of Portsmouth was  involved, for the first time with the VOSH mission, giving assistance at the Portsmouth Hospital. About 600 eye examinations were completed and well over 600 pairs of prescription glasses and sunglasses were handed out. Portsmouth Rotarian volunteers were Rotarians Ezra, Stiengel, Catherine, Hans and Matilda. 

After a hard day's work, Rotarian Lise treated all Doctors and volunteers to a well deserved drink at The Champs Restaurant & Bar.
