News from Trinity United Methodist Church

Kacy Wilson, daughter of Rick and Sandy Wilson, recently traveled to Ghana, Africa, to serve with "Unite for Sight."

On Sunday evening, June 19, 2011, Kacy shared with the Trinity United Methodist congregation her experiences from this mission trip.


Donations made it possible for Kacy and "Unite for Sight" to offer free eye care to people in Ghana. The work teams travel to remote villages where they offer basic eye care screenings and treatments. Central sites offer advanced eye care and even surgery. A $50.00 gift enables a patient to receive cataract surgery! Kacy said, "The people were very appreciative."

The trip to one village was 2 hours each way and they spent 8 hours in service per day. An offering was received after Kacy's presentation and now five more persons can have cataract surgery.

(Unite For Sight(R) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit global health delivery organization that empowers communities worldwide to improve eye health and eliminate preventable blindness.)
