Here We Go Again

It’s been just over a year since I returned from Malawi and in just 5 weeks I will be leaving again for Nicaragua and El Salvador. Team Licensed Optician is partnering with the medical team from PAN missions to provide eye care for villages that have never had this care before. Our team includes Mary K(student optician) and Mabel(intern optician) and 13 others including RNs.
Once again we have been blessed with support from the Optician Association of Canada and the Ontario Optician’s Association, Plastics Plus, Ronor, Personal Optical, Deborah from Optika Electik in Saskatoon, The Frame Barn, Ronit Furst,Prism Optical and Dr Wes McCann of Central and Upper Richmond Optometry and so many in the community and my friends.
We will be equipping a clinic and training staff so that the work and care will continue on after we leave.
It is, again, a big project but I am so grateful for the support of everyone, which is why it is appropriate for my first post to be on this THANKSGIVING DAY!
