Ever Wonder What Happens to Those Glasses You Donate to the Lion’s Club?

Here is an excellent video on a mission trip from VOSH Indiana to Villanueva, Honduras. VOSH stands for Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity. The Lion’s Club collects old eye glasses from doctor’s offices all over the US. These glasses are then catalogued and sent on mission trips with optometrists to underserved areas all over the world. This video shows what happens on a VOSH mission trip from the beginning to the end.

I was lucky enough to go on one of these trips to Costa Rica many years ago with VOSH Illinois, an unforgettable experience. I hope to go again soon.
