There is a group called "Hope Alliance" that goes to Trujillo
every year in order to provide eye examinations,
eye care and eye glasses.
There are Optometrists, Opthamologists, Business Students,
Organization Coordinators, Volunteers,
and then the missionaries
come to translate.
The missionaries do such a great job.
They help administer the eye exams
and translate for the American team
of doctors and volunteers.
The man with his eyes closed below is Tim Barney.
He is the Organization Sponsor.
This group stays in town for about a week
working around the clock.
The missionaries are rotated in every few hours.
They bring in thousands of eye glasses
and each one is appreciated.
It is great for them to be involved in
service and humanitarian aid.
Tyler is not in the pictures,
but he did volunteer!
