A Letter To Our Volunteers...

 

Dear Volunteers,

Robert and I want to again thank each of you on behalf of all of those you served this March 2019 at the Dominican Republic Mission. It is beautiful to witness the outpouring of talent,compassion, dedication and hard work that you bring to the mission. The gift you have given them is beyond measure, for that I hope your heart will be full of the love and appreciation that is sent your way. 

What we do is not to be measured in numbers, but just to let you know what is reported on our not-for-profit, tax material, here they are. The total patients seen in screening and primary eye care was 1214. Surgeries and procedures were as follows: Cataracts-166, Strabismus-87, Plastics-23, Pterygiums-8, Dermatology-65, Total Surgeries 400, Laser Procedures 51. Prosthetic Fittings- NA.

It is so nice to feel and see Spring finally emerging as we get on with our busy lives. We feel so blessed to know each of you.

For those that can come, the Cycle for Sight fund raising ride will be Saturday, July 13th. We hope to see you there. You don't have to ride unless you want to. A picnic will follow at noon at the same place as last year (Murdocks). More details will follow in early June. 

Sending love and wishing each of you the very best. 

Gratefully Yours,

Robert and Darlene
