Happy people with their glasses.
Dominican Republic #2
On June 24, 2023, St Johns Lutheran Church of Sweet Air Maryland sent a small team of volunteers to San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic. This was our 5th trip providing prescription glasses and the first trip in three years following the pandemic. We fitted about 85 pairs of prescription glasses, 200 pairs of reading glasses and over 500 pairs of sunglasses.
In the picture to the left, the woman experienced a “Hallelujah“ moment when we improved her vision from 20/80 to 20/20. This is the first time she was able to see clearly in many years. When I put the glasses on her, she got a big smile and yelled out “Wow!”
We are grateful for all the work Holland and his staff of volunteers have done to make this all possible. The equipment worked flawlessly and helped make our mission a success.
