8 The Peru Project VOSH IMEC Lions Club A Rotary Project with significant participation by
12 Project Goal #1 To set up an Optometry Office in the Blind Institute of Chiclayo in Peru; a clinic built by the Rotary club. Purpose: to test the eyes of poor people, then fit them with glasses and also detect the early onset of blindness. Further potential: to supply basic equipment to elementary school teachers that allows pre-screening of students.
13 Project Goal #2 To supply 7 suites of refurbished hospital equipment to the Regional Hospital de Mercedes in Chiclayo. Purpose: to help service the medical needs of poor people in Chiclayo.
14 Rotary Foundation Matching Grant These Rotary clubs have contributed funds and effort to the Peru project: »Sturbridge, MA »Stourbridge, England »Brookfields, MA »Westford, MA »Lowell, MA »Milford, MA »Chiclayo, Peru D-7910 matched the money and the Rotary Foundation matched it even more.
Hospital Suites as well Through IMEC, we are now filling the container with several suites of hospital equipment for the Hospital Regional Las Mercedes, in Chiclayo. $630 contribution $30,000 - $40,000So for the same $630 contribution the Sturbridge club started with, we now have a project of $30,000 - $40,000. 16
19 How many Eye-Glasses is enough? Discussions with optometrists in New England and Australia suggested that 50,000 pairs of used glasses is appropriate. HELP! A Rotarian in the Framingham club, who is also a Lions club member, worked the magic and a great new relationship has been forged! The Lions of District 33-S, in particular the Dighton club, are also very active in eye-glass projects. They donated 14,000 pairs of glasses to this joint project!
22 So the fun begins, because: Peruvian State of Lambayeque will truck the container from Paita to Chiclayo. Work closely with the Chiclayo club. Celebrate this wonderful collaboration of non-profit organizations.
Last Thought Think about the leverage that is available by partnering with other organizations. That is strongly advocated by the Rotary Foundation. 23 It’s COOL !
