USED SPECTACLES PROJECT
In 1925 Helen Keller, a woman who had been blind and deaf since childhood, challenged Lions to become "Knights of the Blind" in a crusade against darkness. Lions accepted Helen’s challenge and there are now a number of programmes that Lions are involved with worldwide, particularly in third world countries.
If you have old spectacles lying around that you dont use they may be of use to others.
Useful items are labelled, packaged and passed on to Volunteer Ophthalmologist Services Overseas (VOSO) for distribution to those with poor eyesight in the Pacific Islands.
VOSO consists of teams of eye surgeons, optometrists and eye care workers who visit the isolated communities and bring enhancement to the lives of hundreds of people annually. The project has provided over 80,000 pairs of glasses which would have a replacement value in excess of $15 million

THE LIONS CLUB OF KAPITI – Used Spectacles
Lions New Zealand identified a need for spectacles to aid people in the Pacific Islands.
As a result The Lions Club of Kapiti has a spectacle recycling project and they are continually looking for used glasses that can be used in this project.
Do you have any old glasses that you wish to pass on?
Useful items are passed on to Volunteer Ophthalmologist Services Overseas (VOSO) for distribution to those with poor eyesight in the Pacific Islands.
They are then sorted, checked for cracks and scratches before being washed in an ultrasonic washer and dried. They then have their prescription recorded and are packed for delivery.
VOSO consists of teams of eye surgeons, optometrists and eye care workers who visit the isolated communities and bring enhancement to the lives of hundreds of people annually.
If you have any old glasses that you would like to donate to this cause please contact andthel@outlook.com
