Many thanks to our Italian partners. Your order makes it possible for us to donate 1 € for the project „One dollar glasses“ for every participant who comes to us.
According to a study by the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 700 million people need glasses, but cannot afford them. These people cannot work, children and young people cannot learn anything.
The resulting loss of income is estimated at around 200 billion US dollars per year.
The one-dollar spectacles consist of a light, flexible spring steel frame. They are produced and sold by the local people themselves. The cost of materials: around 1 US dollar.
So with every participant who comes to us, we can enable more than one needy person to go to school or work and see well again.
