It Has Become A Familiar Custom: Handing Out Reading Glasses Brought From The Netherlands

Just as previous times, we have also during our most recent time spent together with our team (July/August 2022) handed out an amount of reading glasses that we brought from the Netherlands.

While we transported a group of people to our location with our boat, many others found their way to us on foot. Every time again it touches us to see the delight in people’s faces when they realize that they can again read the newspaper or their pocket bible with the help of the right reading glasses for them.

This time, one lady told us that she didn’t know how to read, but she used to do a lot of needlework; as it had become more and more difficult for her to get the thread into the needle, it was her hope that reading glasses would make it easier for her again. We provided her with a needle and thread for her to test with different reading glasses. And a good match was found… she could return home with the right reading glasses for her!

Except one man who we could not help, and who we advised to see an eye doctor, all people that came for the reading glasses went home with a fitting pair for them.

We want to continue providing people with reading glasses who are in need of them.
Any donation towards this goal, no matter how small or large, will be highly appreciated!
