Unite for Sight is a nonprofit global organization t

hat aims to improve eye health and eliminate blindness by providing free eye care services to more than 200,000 people worldwide each year. Unite for Sight has provided free eye care to 1,200,000 of the world's poorest people and 44,466 sight-restoring surgeries by coordinating and sponsoring local eye clinics and ophthalmologists in Ghana, Honduras, and India. Unite for Sight also trains volunteers to participate in eye health education, awareness and community training programs in order to reduce barriers to eye care in the local community. Volunteers also fundraise to provide free sight restoring eye care for patients living in extreme poverty in developing countries. Our goals for 2013-2014 year is to:

1. Fundraise at least $750 for sight restoring surgeries for people in developing countries with near blindness. Each cataract surgery costs just $50.

2. Educate members of the community at local community centers, homeless shelters, and schools about eye health and the importance of eye care. Inform them on free eye care resources.

3. Volunteer abroad in Ghana, Honduras, and India in a clinical setting. Volunteers assist local eye doctors in delivering eye care to rural villages, refugee camps, and slums. For more information on Unite for Sight, go to www.uniteforsight.org.
