Well it was very hot with little rain to cool things off. 415 patients received eye care, many who had not had eye glasses previously. We even had some retunr patients from trips several years ago. We see the eye care is sustainable using this model! Costs for each trip are increasing as we see many patients. We have to purchase all of the lenses we use. The frame manufacturers have been very generous to us so we have not had to buy eye glass frames. We recycle as many frames as we can from donations from patients and friends.
Our donations of cash have been depleted to puchase supplies for each trip. We will return again when God provides the needed funds for the trip, hopefully in November, 2014. Please pray about donating toward this cause. Thanks from the Eye Care Givers team!
