Contribute to Northeast VOSH
Contributions to the efforts of Northeast Volunteer Optometric Services to Humanity to aid the medical, dental, visual, and pharmaceutical needs of the people of Central America come in many shapes and sizes.   The eyeglasses we dispense, the dental supplies required to aid those in need, the clothing medicine, and vitamins we distribute are donated.

Hurricane Mitch caused an increased level of need for many of the people of Honduras and Nicaragua, and thanks to the incredible generousity of people just like you, Northeast VOSH was able to respond with 20 tons of food, clothing, medicine, and potable water.  Carl Sakovits, OD managed an enourmous amount of coordination to see that every bit of donated goods made it onto a container, into the region and most importantly, into the hands of those hardest hit.

In that time of great need, the donations most desperately needed were those of funds for shipping other donated goods to those in need.

If you can't join us for a mission, please help in whatever way you might by contacting our Chairman directly at the contact information on the right. 

If you would like to contribute to NE VOSH, contact our Chairman,
