Raleigh Rescue Mission
Dr. Kara has provided free eye care at the Raleigh Rescue Mission since 2011
Dr. Kara believes that her gifts and talents should be shared with the less fortunate. In 2011, Dr. Kara established the eye clinic at the Raleigh Rescue Mission, a non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of the homeless. Since then, she has helped give back the gift of sight to hundreds of those living in our community that were truly in need.
Importance of Sight
Our vision is often overlooked as one of the many gifts that we have. We use our sight in almost everything that we do, from eating our breakfast to reading an article to working at our jobs. Now imagine that you cannot see without your glasses. What if they were broken or lost and you had no way to replace them? For most of us, it would be extremely hard to function, hold down a job, or even just be able to take care of ourselves without being able to see.
Impact of the Raleigh Rescue Mission Eye Clinic
Since it’s inception, Dr. Kara has seen hundreds of patients at the Raleigh Rescue Mission. She has provided comprehensive eye exams, eye disease management, and much needed corrective eyeglasses. By providing glasses and complete eye care, we are able to give the patients the vision necessary to study, get jobs, and once again become contributing members of society.
About the Raleigh Rescue Mission
Since 1961, Raleigh Rescue Mission has offered hope and life-changing help to well over 750,000 homeless and hurting individuals.
