Used Eye Glasses
Throughout the year, donations of used eyeglasses are collected. When in Senegal, and Gambia, residents have the opportunity to select glasses that allows them to see better. Several hundreds of glasses have been distributed over the years. For the people of Senegal who struggle to make a daily living, having corrective lens is a luxury. One of the distributions that were held this week was at the Diokoul Kher Medical Center. Madame Diajaugna reported that there were over 200 people gathered at the Medical Center before 7:00 am in order to receive eye glasses. At this one event, we distributed between 500- 600 pairs of glasses. Men and women from all walks of life, including Imams, community leasers teachers , nurses, etc. came out to be benefactors of this gift. In 2017, there were over 1,500 glasses delivered in Senegal.
