A month later and I’m finally finding some time to share a few photos and videos from my trip to Nicaragua last month. If you follow me on any social media platform, you are probably already sick of seeing these posts, so I’m going to keep it short and sweet.
Last month I traveled to Nicaragua to photograph and video an Optometry Giving Sight sponsored mission trip. Over the course of four clinic days, over 800 people received eye exams, and hundreds of those walked away with new glasses. Nicaragua is one of the poorest countries in Central America. The majority of the country makes less than one hundred dollars per month. Most of these people cannot afford glasses, so many have gone the majority of their lives with no vision care. Although we were unable to help everyone, it was incredible to play a part in contributing to the lives of so many.
Overall, this trip was absolutely life changing. When people ask me about the experience, I have a hard time putting it into words. I am so thankful I have the photos and videos to do that for me.
I have included a video I produced for company marketing purposes, a slideshow of some of the patients we saw, and some incredible sights/wildlife. Enjoy!
P.S. Be prepared to be overloaded with wedding blogs next!!
