Blessing of reading glasses

 We are receiving reading glasses from Holland and we give them out to people who need them. It is a blessing for many people. There are teachers, policemen, pastors and here on this picture you see three nurses from Soroti Hospital. They are very happy with the glasses, it helps them to be able to read the writing of the doctor(!). We give them a book with small letters or the newspaper and they just try out, which glasses are the best.
 We get the reading glasses send by people in the Netherlands, so sometimes we are out of stock, we have to wait until someone sends them again. It always amazes me, that when we have a new load of glasses, people know..... maybe the tam-tam goes, because then many people come and ask for reading glasses. As long as we have them... we are happy to give them out!
This gentleman also found a pair which helps him to read the newspaper again! I hope he doesn't forget to take off the sticker!
If there are people who wants to help us in sending reading glasses, we are happy to receive them and to give them out! But we only give out reading glasses, no glasses for far sighted problems. We mostly give out +1, +1,50, +2, +2,50, +3. Our address is: Amecet, PO BOX 792, Soroti, Uganda.
Eyalama noi!!!!
