The Eco Council are on a mission to collect as many pairs of unused glasses as they can from their friends and families, we will deliver them to a local optician to be recycled. Not only is it reinforcing our ethos of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle it is also helping us to make a global link. Your generosity will help poor people in Africa through the work of Vision Aid Overseas; they work for a world in which everyone has access to eye care and spectacles. They are committed to the development of primary eye care and utilise professional volunteers to establish vision centres and train eye care workers. By enabling people to have this access, parents are able to continue working and supporting their families and children can receive an education.
We are sure that many of you will have a drawer full of old spectacles that you can no longer use as your prescription may have changed. We would be very grateful if you could donate them to us for this great cause.
The great work we are doing for Vision Aid Overseas today will help raise vital funds to eliminate avoidable blindness by 2021.
