As you might already know, we collect old glasses, and make sure, that they get a new life, and brings great joy to less fortunate people, who really need them. We are very happy to tell, that we just started working with the Danish association Syn For Sagen i Afrika.
Syn for Sagen i Afrika receive and collect old glasses. After the glasses has been measured and an eyesight test has been done by an authorized optician, the glasses are handed out to people living in poverty for free. The organization is non-political and non-religious, and it is run by volunteers. The trips are organized in corporation with local organizations in the countries they travel to.
250 eye tests a day
When the organization is travelling, they are doing 250 eyesight tests a day, and since 2012, they have handed out more than 10.000 pairs of glasses in Africa and South America. The organization works with the people living in the countryside, where many people are suffering from poor eyesight due to multiple infections, diabetes, cataracts and bad hygiene.
We encourage you to take really good care of your glasses, they might change a life someday!
