Several hundred pairs of eyeglasses and sunglasses were distributed to those in need. The average cost for a pair of glasses in the Kisii region is several months wages. Many who were in need were going without due to the cost. For some, this clinic provided the needed eyeglasses to help them return to work. For others, like the children, it provided clear vision for studying. It was pure joy for all when an individual would find their perscription and with a big smile state that they could see clearly as they looked around the room!
