      Hi all,

      Unite For Sight has many new volunteer opportunities in Africa, Asia,
      Latin America, and Eastern Europe for the Fall, Winter, and Spring.
      Some opportunities are still available for the Summer, too.
      Opportunities are available in rural villages, urban locations,
      and refugee camps (including in the tsunami region). You can read about
      all of the opportunities at http://www.uniteforsight.org/intl_volunteer/

      Unite For Sight volunteers implement outreach programs to prescribe
      eyeglasses, implement eye health education, and screen for cataracts,
      pterygium, and other eye diseases. All patients with eye disease are
      referred to the closest quality eye clinic for diagnosis, treatment, and
      surgery. This new form of delivery enables sustainable programs while
      simultaneously reducing all of the barriers to health care, including
      financial, transportation, and education hindrances. Unite For Sight's
      model also reduces costs and expands the ability of all people to "Unite
      For Sight" and help in the fight against blindness.

      The Unite For Sight programs are open to individuals 18 years and older,
      and there is no upper age limit. Returned and future Peace Corps
      volunteers, undergraduate and medical students, public health
      professionals, nurses, educators, optometrists, and ophthalmologists are
      especially encouraged to apply.

      Sincerely,
      Jennifer Staple
      Founder, President & CEO
