Support still as important as ever!

The corona pandemic has a particularly devastating impact on the poor in developing countries where we work:  those individuals do not have the luxury to shelter at home and must provide for their families. Even though most of our activities have been curtailed to protect our employees and patients, we have committed to maintaining their salaries throughout this difficult period.  As our employees plan ahead to resume optical care and dispensing when it is safe to do so, your support is needed more than ever during this trying time.  Please support us in this.

You can also find the latest information on our social media channels on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

“These glasses are too valuable –
I only put them on for field work.”
