Join our team of cheerful volunteers!
Over the past 20 years we have received volunteering teams and individuals that have helped us in fulfilling our vision to stop avoidable blindness among the rural under-served people in Uganda. These generous people come from all over the world and give their time, skills and money. We at CRESP are very grateful for their involvement in our activities as we cannot accomplish much without them.
CRESP offers many volunteering opportunities to participate in its activities. Contact us to find out how you can be part of this move to prevent avoidable blindness.
Most of our activities are community-based and don i partnership with regional referral hospitals. In the past we have worked with Mbale Regional Hospital, Jinja Regional Hospital, Mulago Hospital and Mengo Hospital. Some of our volunteers have donated funds and facilities to upgrade the optical services in these hospitals.
The outreaches are a complete package which includes sensitization about healthy eyes, eye screening and examinations, administering treatment, giving spectacles and organizing eye operations for those that need them.
As a thank you gift, we treat our volunteers to a trip of at least one of Uganda’s tourist attractions
