We want to say a huge thank you to the incredible OneSight team who have recently spent time at five Salvation Army centres around the country providing free eye tests and glasses to Kiwis who are unable to afford them.

624 people were seen over five days with nearly 70% needing glasses. Amazingly, 150 people attending the clinics were are able to leave with their new glasses which were manufactured on site!

OneSight Programme Manager for Australia/New Zealand Jenny Harnett says it was an honour to partner with The Salvation Army to deliver these clinics to communities in need. “We believe that glasses unlock potential, providing opportunities for students to learn, for people to work and earn a living, to drive, to read, and to support their families."

Thanks again OneSight!
