Clinic Day 5 - Find Your Story
We saw 1,110 people today at clinic. Paul Case (Clinic Manager) challenged the team this morning to find their OneSight story. This story is an interaction with a recipient or the experience as a whole that we can share with others when we return home.
Here is one story from today and others will follow in days to come. Daniel (age 7) had glasses, but he wasn’t seeing well out of them. We were able to find new glasses closer to his Rx (Right eye -5.50 -4.50; Left eye -4.75 -4.00). I noticed some hearing aids in his ears and his mother explained that he has very little hearing ability. He reads lips and has to read subtitles to watch TV or movies. The better glasses he received today are especially helpful since he also has hearing problems. His happy face after receiving the new glasses was infectious to all of us around him. See his picture below.
Tonight we hosted our silent auction. Everyone on the clinic brings something for the silent auction. Items range from jewelry, hats, shirts, or other special items from their hometowns. There were over 100 items and we raised $4,130 for OneSight! It was a lot of fun and the money goes to continue the great work OneSight does around the world.
