A note from Seva's Executive Director about COVID-19
We are weathering a storm together. The COVID-19 pandemic is reshaping the world and our lives every single day. We want you to know that in these difficult and uncertain times, our resolve to end avoidable blindness remains steadfast.
We are working with our partners worldwide to ensure that they have the support they need for their own safety as well as their staff and patients as they provide urgently needed emergency eye care. We are focused on resuming the full range of eye services: surgeries, glasses, medications and other care to meet local needs when it is safe to do so.
Today and everyday, Seva's work does not stop during this challenging time. Our teams world-wide are working tirelessly and remotely so that when this difficult time has passed, we are ready. Ready to transform lives by restoring sight.
It is our responsibility as individuals to flatten the curve and slow the spread of the virus. We encourage you to take the extra precautions necessary to safeguard your own health as well as the well being of those around you.
Volunteer professionals greatly enhance the work of Seva's Sight Programs around the world.
In each of the countries where Seva works, we focus on strengthening the capacity of local program partners to deliver excellent eye care services. Quality services are a key to building sustainable programs that can take root and grow. Seva has benefited from volunteers with a range of experiences and skills, including:
Marketing/ Communications professionals
Researchers / Business development professionals
Seva works with volunteers who can:
Help virtually train and mentor local staff seeking to improve eye care programs and service delivery
Make a lasting impact – we prefer volunteers who can make longer commitments or who can volunteer a few weeks every year.
While we welcome applications year round, Seva is only able to develop volunteer opportunities that meet our program partners' specific needs, so opportunities may be limited.
Our volunteers cover their own expenses, and we consider this to be an in-kind donation to Seva.
If you are interested in volunteering, please fill out the form on this page so Seva can assess if your skills and experience match the needs of our program partners. If a program volunteer opportunity is not available, we encourage you to consider another rewarding volunteer position with our organization.
Thanks again for your interest in volunteering with Seva!
