Seventeen North Dakota Lions and associates recently travelled to Puerto Vallarta Mexico in February 2016 to provide eye care services and glasses to nearly 800 locals. This was done in conjunction with the Puerto Vallarta (PV) Lions Club and was an overwhelming success in my opinion. We gave out nearly 1500 glasses, and triaged many for eye surgery. The hundreds of volunteer hours put in prior to the trip reading glasses prescriptions and organizing them by North Dakota Lions cannot go without mention. Having never gone on a Mission Trip before, I was filled with questions prior to our arrival. Sue Anderson, who organized the trip admirably, answered most of them, but many had no answer until the first day we saw patients. Providing medical eye care with 16 non-medical volunteers of all ages could have proven difficult, but this group was filled with motivated and caring Lions and family members who proved to be quick and competent learners of the craft! As the only Physician in the group I couldn’t have been more impressed! Our brother Lions from Puerto Vallarta, led by President Enrique Perez Flores, did an outstanding job advertising the event and in screening patients and translating. Their hospitality toward our team was exemplary. It was a wonderful example of two cultures combining to fill a HUGE need!
