After our first day, we met some very special people.......
Dear old sweetie could not see even with +6.50 glasses, so I gave her a handheld 7X magnifier with a built in light and she started to cry because she can now read her Bible again. Rodger Konkle
Roberto custom made a pair of -22.50 eyeglasses for "Razel" a college graduate who had never had glasses before and had to be led by an escort everywhere she went and after receiving the glasses, she said " now I am independent and can get a job." Rodger Konkle
This beautiful 9 year old girl is very nearsighted and the mother was told that she had to buy new glasses for her daughter every 2 months. She was so pleased when our doctors told her the glasses would be good for at least a year. The mother said she cleans houses and does laundry for others just to save up enough money to buy her daughter's glasses which would be more than a month's wage. Her little girl was given a kenneth cole pair of glasses with thin lenses and all the coatings..... from our recycled eyeglass inventory.
|Why the big smile?......it's her first pair and she's 29 years old|
