Clinic Blog: 2011 Mexico Clinic Blog

Mexico Clinic 2011 - 5 days to departure!
Less than one week to the official start of One Sight Clinic to Mexico 2011! And the perfect time to open the mission’s official blog!
Our team of volunteers and doctors will land in Mexico on May 23, and spend 2 weeks just outside Puebla providing complete eye exams and eyewear to thousands of people that would not otherwise afford to see the world clearly.
We will start posting messages and pictures highlighting our days at the clinic, including stories of our recipients as well as sharing our own experiences, touching and fun, according to the moment!
Please do comment, and send messages to the volunteers: I am sure hearing from friends and family will make many volunteers’ day…and provide even more energy to a group that, mark down my words, seems already pretty energetic! :)
In addition, our team is running a FUNDRAISING to help fund our clinic: we have so far raised more than $8,000 (thanks everyone!), but we are still in need to reach our goal to raise $20,000.

In case you are not fully familiar, One Sight is a family of charitable programs dedicated to improving vision through outreach, research and education. Sponsored by Luxottica, One Sight programs have helped more than 7 million people (and counting!) over its 20-year history. Each year, One Sight conducts 2-week clinic when our doctors and trained volunteer provide free eye exams and eyewear to thousands of people in need. To date, One Sight has run nearly 200 clinics in 37 different countries….guess Mexico will be number 38th??
So...countdown has started! 5 days to go!
