Here at Make it Happen we are always on the lookout for organisations that share our values and are really making a difference, both in Sierra Leone and the world. A chance encounter, while one of our team was having a routine eye test, introduced us to Vision Aid Overseas. They are a charity that works to bring eye care to those most in need. Experience in our schools has shown us just how significantly poor vision can hamper a child’s education. The somewhat seemingly small gift of a pair of eyeglasses can transform a persons in needs life.
We would encourage anyone with old unwanted glasses to consider donating them to Vision Aid Overseas, this can be done in person at many opticians around the country or by ordering a shipping pack, via Vision Aid Overseas website.
Below is a quote from their mission statement.
