Unwanted Glasses & Sunglasses

Up until 1st November, 2017 we are collecting unwanted prescription Glasses & Sunglasses on behalf of Kedem.  The glasses are to be distributed by YWAM Medical Ships (who provide high quality health care)  to people living in remote and isoldated villages in Papus New Guinea. 

Volunteers will test distance and reading vision and prescribe glasses as needed.  Cataracts and pterygiums (a growth of tissue that lines the eyelids and can cover the eyeball) are common.  Sunglasses, new and loved, are desperately needed as they are one item given out sparingly and one that is always requested by locals. 

The glasses can be dropped of at Tivoli German Club on Tuesday for collection at our evening meeting or contact 95762277 to arrange for drop off points.

The Rotary Club of Glen Eira helps young people in our community. Annually we present our Youth of the Year Award that recognises a young person in the City of Glen Eira who best demonstrates "Service Above Self". Working with local schools, we send students to leadership camps, host overseas exchange programs, and help underprivileged children play footy at local community football clubs.

We are a group of professional people who use our professional skills to best benefit the community. We have provided job interview practice to local high school students, used our connections to source used goods to send to third world countries, and recognised businesses who do good in our local community. Our Annual Business Person's Breakfast is now in its 25th year.
