Dr. Kara Peterson travels yearly to Guatemala with a VOSH team to provide comprehensive eye care to remote rural communities

Dr. Kara has been the president of VOSH-Ontario for the past 6 years.  While VOSH Ontario has been a recognized chapter for many years, they were unsuccessful in two previous attempts to achieve non-profit incorporation status in Ontario.  In 2011 with Dr. Kara as president, they were finally accepted as a non-profit organization which has taken their efforts to a far greater level.  VOSH-Ontario travels to Guatemala each year to provide eye care and surgeries to the underserviced areas of Guatemala.  Each of the volunteers on the team must fund their own travel, food and accommodation.  All of the fundraising efforts then go towards paying for surgeries and the needs of the people seen.   Surgeries are performed by a long term friend, a local ophthalmologist in Guatemala.  Dr. Kara has been on numerous eye care teams over her years as an optometrist.

Read about Dr. Kara and her trips in the London Community News.
