GLOBAL re-VISION PRESENTATION TO FSK LIONS CLUB
 

April 22, 2014

 

Bob Martin is shown during his Overcoming Five Global Problems in One Easy Step presentation to the FSK Lions Club; the one easy step is by donating used eyeglasses.

Bob Martin, of the GLOBAL re-VISION Network, recently spoke to the Francis Scott Key Lions Club on “Overcoming 5 Global Problems in One Easy Step.” During his presentation Martin, who is also Lions District 22W Sight Conservation Chairman, described how we all can solve a global public health problem, cure the world's No. 1 learning disability, reduce illiteracy, diminish blindness, and overcome poverty in one easy step—simply by donating used eyeglasses. GLOBAL re-VISION Network provides free eyeglasses through seven facilities in three countries—the United States, Mexico, and Haiti, with plans to open an eighth clinic in a fourth country. The network establishes permanent, charitable, low-cost vision clinics—operated by local, trained workers--using recycled eyeglasses, a sophisticated computer program, and electronic diagnostic technology. One clinic, Clinica de Salud Visual in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico, opened in November 2006 and is able to provide eyeglasses for about 90% of the prescriptions needed by persons walking into the clinic. Additional information on the network is available at www.globalrevision.org. FSK Lions eyeglass collection box locations may be found at www.fsklions.org, under Eyeglass Collection.

 
The FSK Lions meet the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Barbara Fritchie Candystick Restaurant, 1513 West Patrick Street, Frederick. Dinner is $16.50 a person. For additional information on the FSK Lions or on becoming a Lion, visit www.fsklions.org or contact Membership Chairman Darlene Aulls at 301/662-2360.
