we would love them !!
prescription glasses program
FOL in association with Timor Trekking Homestay wanted to address the issue of poor eyesight in response to older members of the community, not having the economic means to travel to an optometrist nor purchase a pair due to cost. For many, having a pair of glasses can make the difference between older women continuing their weaving as a form of economic means or a farmer tending to their stock or becoming destitute.
FoL also recognised that unused prescription glasses in Western countries were rarely disposed of, yet were not donated to charity. The opportunity to give unused glasses a new life and simultaneously improve the vision of older people in the Luro community was the only feasible way in which to bring sight to those visually impaired.
The good news is that You can make a huge difference in someone’s life, simply by donating your unworn glasses.
have you got unused perscription glasses ?
and we guarantee You, that they will go to a good home !
Imagine the feeling of being a boy who constantly did poorly in school because he couldn't see the words in his books, all of a sudden having reading make sense because he received the gift of recycled glasses.
