About Our Chapter
Volunteer Optometry Services to Humanity (VOSH) – California Chapter is a group of likeminded students, doctors and volunteers who believe that everyone deserves a right to healthy vision. This includes giving reading glasses to a grandmother who is no longer able to read her Bible, or giving a delivery driver his vision back so he can earn a living for his family. We have no political or religious agenda, yet we work with religious or government groups who are committed to tolerance. VOSH/International is the voice of 27 State Chapters and 17 Student Chapters in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Honduras and the Netherlands. Volunteers pay their own way and often times return year after year. Various fundraising efforts are initiated throughout the year to help offset some of the cost of the trip. VOSH is proof that one man’s dream can be a catalyst for international good. Hundreds of thousands of people have been helped ad there are millions more to reach….one at a time.
