In 2010, the Chinese Women's Federation assisted Michele McCarthy in setting up a vision clinic out of their facility in Taishan.
They invited the elderly from several surrounding villages to attend the "free eyeglass clinic." It was very successful with over 100 people being tested and given reading glasses.
It was truly amazing to see the looks on the faces of the elderly as they "saw" clearly for the first time since their youth. In fact, this clinic was so successful that EVHS had to purchase more reading glasses from a manufacturer in Taishan. We have been invited back in 2011 to conduct another vision clinic, which will, once again, be hosted by the Chinese Women's Federation.
