Approximately 800 million people worldwide are blind; on the contrary 80 % of all blindness is avoidable. 269 million people are visually impaired because they do not have access to proper eye care and eye wear, Global Eyeglasses has joined hands with various nonprofit organizations to give these individuals free eyewear and the ability to have a brighter future.
How do we do that?
Global Eyeglasses feels proud to be a part of New Eyes for the Needy, New Jersey based Non-Profit Organization. New Eyes for the Needy accepts, recycles, and distributes donated glasses for poor people overseas. Over 7,500,000 people in the U.S. and 87 countries around the world have enjoyed the benefits of improved eyesight through New Eyes for the Needy. As a part of our partnership, we will now support this charitable organization's recycling and distribution program for prescription glasses.
Unite For Sight is an organization that supports eye clinics worldwide by investing human and financial resources in their social ventures to eliminate vision disorders. Over 1.4 million people around the world have enjoyed the benefits of improved eyesight through Unite For Sight. We have joined hands with Unite For Sight to brighten the future of people unable to afford eyeglasses and thus bring about a measurable difference. As a part of our partnership, we provide the organization with 50 pairs of eyeglasses each month for donation.
"The world health organization estimated that 44 % of world's population needs eyeglasses, but do not have access to them. These people are unable to support their family because of this uncorrected vision. Therefore, this simple act of donating eyeglasses will impact many lives for years to come, bringing employment opportunities for adults and improving a child's ability to learn in school. We hope that this initiative of ours will brighten the future of many."
We are continually looking for opportunities to extend our support to vision care programs around the world. If you are a charitable organisation or looking for more information on any of our programs then please email us at email@example.com
