To facilitate order, persons should be pre-screened by nurses at the clinics. We seek the cooperation of the public in that regard.The Rotary Club of Dominica collaborated with the Rotary Club of Eaton Rapids, Michigan, USA 23 years ago to plan and implement the VOSH project. The annual VOSH mission is highly anticipated by the Dominican public and has been successful since its inception.On average over 1,500 people receive complete eye examinations each year and most receive prescription eyeglasses and “sun shades”. Persons who receive glasses are required to make a minimum contribution of $25.center_img Sharing is caring!
