What is the glasses foundation? The glasses foundation is called Alaffia and they donate prescription glasses to people in Africa. This started when a doctor in Togo thought people in Southern Africa would really need glasses, so why not use old glasses from those who no longer need them.  One eye exam in Africa can cost up to 1 month of wages. Eye glasses can cost up to 4 months of wages.

This program helps by taking your old glasses you don’t use anymore and donating them to people who seriously need them for their everyday lives. You can help by donating your old glasses. This is the first year Roosevelt is doing this program. We still need a lot more glasses for everybody, kids in school, the elderly, and more. We don’t have a number goal but the object of this is to get as many as possible. We need more, so please donate now to help the people in need of proper eyewear. This program lasts the entire month of May, so donate soon!
