Next stop: Lilongwe. Here’s the autorefractor, donated by Rotary Club of Colchester Trinity, being checked by a freight services company in Hayes, near Heathrow, before being flown out to our agents in Malawi.
Many complex factors contribute to poverty, but one simple contribution to fighting it is to help people to see better, so they can study and work. In fact, worldwide, half of all sight problems can be solved by using glasses to aid reading and close work. So join us on Friday 20 April in Colchester to help prepare another batch of secondhand glasses to send to our mission partners in Malawi. Starts 19:30 and there’ll be plenty of refreshments to keep you going. For more details, phone 01206 622712.
