We have been distributing reading glasses in the villages and at the Asilo (home for seniors) since January 2018 and it is a very popular program.
The senior women in particular are thrilled when they realise that that can thread their own needles again. That is life changing for them because it renews their self-esteem. The men need glasses for tying fish hooks and the young people for studying. When working by candle light a pair of magnifying glasses is a huge help. The residents of the seniors home also appreciate them.
Our volunteers are excellent at keeping us supplied with glasses bringing them with them each time they return from their home countries.
