Volunteer Abroad With Unite For Sight in Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer

Make A Difference!

http://www.uniteforsight.org/intl_volunteer

Save Eyes and Lives. Every Eye, A Life.

Those who are blind in Africa have a four times higher mortality rate

60-80% of children who become blind die within 1-2 years

80% of blindness is curable or preventable

How Do I Apply? The application as well as complete details about Unite For Sight's international opportunities are available at http://www.uniteforsight.org/intl_volunteer/

What is Unite For Sight's Mission? Unite For Sight (http://www.uniteforsight.org ) is a 501©(3) nonprofit organization that empowers communities worldwide to improve eye health and eliminate preventable blindness.

Unite For Sight's work to prevent blindness and restore sight is featured weekly on CNN INTERNATIONAL from September 2007-August 2008

What Do Volunteers Do?: The goal of Unite For Sight and its partner eye clinics and communities is to create eye disease-free communities. Unite For Sight's volunteers (local and visiting) work with partner eye clinics to provide eye care in communities without previous access. Visiting volunteers from North America range from undergraduate and medical students, educators, nurses, and public health professionals to optometrists and ophthalmologists. The eye clinic's eye doctors and Unite For Sight volunteers jointly provide community-based screening programs in rural villages. The clinic's eye doctors diagnose and treat eye disease in the field, and surgical patients are brought to the eye clinic for surgery. Patients receive free surgery funded by Unite For Sight so that no patient remains blind due to lack of funds

Who Is Eligible to Participate?: The Unite For Sight internship is open to individuals 18 years and older, and there is no upper age limit. Volunteers range from undergraduate students to medical students, nurses, educators, optometrists and ophthalmologists.

What Do Volunteers Say?:

"After an amazing experience volunteering with Unite for Sight in Ghana in 2005, where I made lifelong friends, learned to face challenges I never dreamed I would encounter, and most importantly helped hundreds of people who had previously been unable to see, I could not wait to become involved with Unite for Sight again. The incredible experience I had in Chennai, India this past summer 2006 made me realize that the success of my first internship was not a fluke, that Unite for Sight's programs all over the world are strong not only in helping the medically underserved, but also in educating and changing the lives of volunteers.

The medical staff at the Uma Eye Clinic in Chennai were hard-working, welcoming, and totally committed both to caring for the patients funded by Unite for Sight and to helping Unite for Sight volunteers become comfortable in a foreign environment. Time and time again they went out of their way to teach us ophthalmologic skills with care and patience. It was a true gift to be able to learn one-on-one from excellent physicians about all steps in the cataract surgery process.

The men, women, and children I met at our traveling eye camps were badly in need of eye care, and I am grateful that we were able to help them. They were also lovely hosts and were excited to show us their culture. As they showed me where they worked and lived, I was often struck by the fact that their sight is important not only to their quality of life, but often also to their ability to provide for themselves and their families. It was at these times that I realized the importance of Unite for Sight's mission.

Without Unite for Sight, I cannot imagine how I could possibly have seen and learned so much as an undergraduate about medicine, other cultures, and my own desire and ability to make a difference in others' lives."--Charlotte Hogan, Georgetown University Student, Unite For Sight Volunteer in India (2006) and Ghana (2005)
