Seeing clearly now...

Guess how much 900 pairs of reading glasses weigh?


57 pounds!


We will carry them down to Guatemala at the end of the month. Community Health Worker students will study eye problems and learn to prescribe reading glasses.


A CHW says: "Un peso algo grande pero super importante. Me gusta ver la reaccion de los pacientes cuando ponen sus lentes y logran ver lo que ya no podian ver." (A somewhat large weight, but very important. I like to see the reaction of the patients when they put on their glasses and are able to see what they hadn't been able to see.)
