Welcome to Detroit 2011!
Hello everyone! We would like to thank you and welcome you to the Onesight Clinic in Detroit for 2011!
We have assembled an awesome team of volunteers and doctors from around the world, and will be spending two weeks providing exams and eyewear to the youth of the Detroit area, who would otherwise not be able to afford them. Every day we will be updating our experiences at and around the clinic, giving stories of fantastic recipients, and the experience of the team, allowing you to see what we experience and the differences we make during our stay here. We will be arriving on April 25th , and we will be updating this blog daily until our departure on May 6th , so please be sure to check often so you don't miss anything!
