The Gift of Sight

MAY 15TH 2024

The people of Ukraine have lost so much over the past two years, as many fled their homes with just the clothes on their backs. Thousands of pairs of eyeglasses were lost or broken, and individuals cannot afford to buy replacements.

Thanks to our partnership with RestoringVision, an organization committed to spreading clear vision across the globe, we have been able to address this need by providing more than 300,000 pairs of glasses to Ukrainians. Recently we received our third shipment of high-quality reading glasses, manufactured by the largest optical companies in the world.

Our distribution of much needed eyewear extends far beyond the communities we regularly support. We collaborated with several reputable and reliable charitable organizations in Ukraine to reach people in all parts of the country, from Lviv in the West, to Kharkov in the East, and from Mykolaiv in the South to Chernihiv in the North. We partnered with large entities such as the Red Cross and Caritas as well as small local organizations, all of which are committed to providing much needed aid and support to the people of Ukraine.

We are grateful to RestoringVision, the optical companies, and Ukrainian aid organizations for bringing the gift of sight to many Ukrainians who are very much in need. Together we save lives and restore hope.

Together, we Save Lives and Restore Hope!
