Bonne année / Happy New Year

Un petit mot pour vous souhaiter une heureuse année 2018.

Grâce à l’implication de tous, nous avons pu rendre une meilleure vision à plus
de 13 000 personnes et envoyer 150 000 lunettes à d’autres groupes pour
distribution en 2017.

Nous accueillerons la réunion annuelle de Vosh International
au mois d’octobre 2018. En espérant que 2018 nous offrira de nouvelles
occasions pour servir les plus mal pris de nous.

A few words to wish you a Happy New Year 2018.

Thanks to the cooperation of many, we were able to give a better eyesight to
over 13,000 and send 150,000 eyeglasses to be distributed by other groups in 2017.

We will be hosting the International Vosh meeting in October 2018. Hoping that 2018 will offer us other occasions to help those in need.

University of Waterloo student testimony

VOSH SANTA CRUZ was an absolute amazing experience! Being able to help so many people in the Guayquil and Cuenca communities in Ecuador was inspirational, and rewarding. Some patients came into the clinic simply wanting to be able to read their books again and it was incredible to see their faces light up when our team helped them with their visual problems. There was no shortage of great chemistry between all team members from Waterloo, Montreal, Texas, and Calgary!

The clinics treated us very well with provided meals (their specialty was cassava cheese bread), and we got fully immersed in the culture of the Ecuadorians at the Corpus Christi festival! It was remarkable to see a different culture and way of life, and a little bit of danger from the fireworks was all in good fun!

I would certainly recommend this trip to all optometry students as its an experience of a lifetime with your classmates and new found friends. Overall you get to showcase your clinical skills, see diseases first hand, and learn!
