The past two years I’ve donated time to the Issa Trust Foundation going to Jamaica for 10 days to document a pediatric health initiative with photos and videos. The photos and videos illustrate the efforts of the volunteer doctors, nurses, pharmacists and support staff. Watching these professionals perform their work with the children, I felt somewhat non-essential to the efforts of the mission. However, after looking through images and editing short videos of the mission, I feel I’m a valuable part of the “team” creating awareness of the Issa Trust Foundation’s efforts.
The child in the these photos has survived dengue fever and is on the road to recovery.

This year the Michigan Lions Club donated their time and brought over 2,000 pairs of recycled glasses. The children were able to have a free eye exam and if they needed glasses they were given a pair right after their exam. During the five days, 83 pairs of glasses were handed out.
Thanks for stopping by!
