Five Global Problems in One Easy Step presentation to

|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
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.
