Canvasback Missions is very privileged to be able to share the donations of many philanthropic organizations with the people of Micronesia. One generous donation which was received this year was a collection of eyeglasses provided by Northwest Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center.
Thanks to their ongoing and generous work, we were able to provide 393 pairs of eyeglasses to the people of Ebeye in January, 2010. More recently the people of Chuuk were also recipients of donated eyeglasses, where another team of ophthalmologists and their assistants went to perform cataract surgery, treat eye disease and distribute eyeglasses. This time the Placerville Lions Club donated the eyeglasses.
