SPEAKER: Mike Brookshire
Mike shared slides and stories from his volunteer opportunity with VOSH (Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity) to Haiti in Nov 2017. Unlike some other trips to Haiti, the staff was able to stay in the Hotel Mont Joli where they had beds, food, and hot showers! It rained at least twice a day which left muddy "roads" and water everywhere. The quiet of the first light of morning was greeted with roosters crowing and the church bells ringing, a much nicer sound then motorcycles. During this trip they went to 5 locations in Haiti and saw a total of 1119 patients. To bring clear sight to those who didn't have it is clearly something you must experience to feel its impact.
