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.

Trachoma is an infectious eye disease that can be prevented with good hygiene practices. It is still present in remote Aboriginal communities and can lead to permanent blindness.
