I Care International, Inc. is a non-religious, non-political, non-discriminatory organization. Volunteers and people in need from all walks of life are welcome.
I Care's goal is to help others improve their quality of life by providing the gift of better vision and health. From the little boy who smiles because now he sees the clouds in the sky, to the older lady who cries because now she can sew and have an income, I Care International is changing lives one by one.
I Care volunteers, including volunteer optometrists and other professionals, donate their time and pay for their own travel and living expenses, therefore, your support truly affords help to the people that need it most.
A typical I Care team will provide vision services for 4 days or more, examining as many as 500 people or more a day by conducting acuity tests, eye exams and fitting prescription eyeglasses. A library of at least 10,000 new and used eyeglasses are needed for each mission. The inventory of glasses is assembled before each trip takes place through the work of volunteers who measure the prescription and then clean, store and catalog each pair of glasses.
In order to make each mission possible, I Care International collaborates with community service groups, civic and government organizations, translators, and the medical and business communities, both locally and in host countries.
