Parents and school kids at a number of Wellington schools are also collecting glasses to help out in Fiji. It's great to get donations of children's glasses frames, as children's eyesight can change rapidly. For the first time, Ravi will be visiting schools in Fiji, using a special screening tool just to check children's eyesight. This is the same tool that Foureyes Foundation uses for its school screening work here in New Zealand.
And of course our partner charities - Lions and VOSO. Members of the Karori Lions Club will process and sort all the donated glasses, check their prescriptions, and get them ready to head to Fiji. And VOSO will be providing the team of optometrists and other medical professionals that Ravi will be a part of in Fiji.
