Bringing Sight To the Poor

I read a piece in today's news about a local student now attending Princeton University who seeks donations to help prevent blindness in Honduras.  His goal is to actively volunteer in Honduras for Unite For Sight.

The website explains, "Unite For Sight supports eye clinics worldwide by investing human and financial resources in their social ventures to eliminate patient barriers to eye care. Unite For Sight applies best practices in eye care, public health, volunteerism, and social entrepreneurship to achieve our goal of high quality eye care for all...To date, we have provided eye care services to...the world's poorest... more than 1,300,000 people worldwide, including more than 49,000 sight-restoring surgeries...in North America, Africa and Asia."
