We couldn’t do what we do without our team of incredible volunteers. Meet Nícolas Braga Vianna, one of the volunteers on our recent Amazon Clinic. He does what it takes to bring vision care access to the most remote areas of the world - even if that means sleeping on the floor of the boat. It’s people like Nícolas who make what we do at #OneSight possible.
Preventive care is important for eyes, too. Even when no symptoms are present, eye exams uncover underlying problems. And the earlier the detection, the better the outcome. When was the last time you had an eye exam? #onesight#preventivecare#visioncare
Meet 6 year old Steven, one of our South Africa clinic patients who was struggling in school. His teachers noticed he couldn’t see the board, so he wasn’t paying close attention in class. Steven is now a proud owner of his very own specs and says “I feel good to be wearing my glasses!”
Since 1988, we’ve kept our sights on one mission: close the vision care gap for good. So far, we’ve helped over 21 million people. But there’s more work to do. 1 in 7 people still lack vision care access. Here’s how you can help: https://bit.ly/2EHomuD #onesight#makeadifference#unify#change#together
For 30 years OneSight has been providing clear sight to those who have no way to get it. It couldn't have happened without all of the donors, sponsors, partners, and volunteers who inspire us and make this work possible. Thanks to you, over 21 million people in 49 countries (and counting) have access to vision care. Here’s to a wonderful 2018, and an even better 2019. Again, thank you and happy new year!
OneSight staffer Max recently went #plogging to clean up his neighborhood and get some exercise in at the same time. Definitely a 'nice list' candidate this holiday season. We've got a 'nice list' of our own at link in our profile. #seethegoodsharethegood
We have a lot to be thankful for this #InternationalVolunteerDay, with 71,840 hours given by our supporters worldwide to help bring clear sight to those in need this year. We appreciate each and every one of you who has stepped up to make a difference. Haven't had a chance to join us yet? Learn more about becoming a volunteer at the link in our profile.
