650 pairs of glasses dispensed

Here's just one of the 800 people we saw during our recent visit to Malawi. Of those, over 650 received glasses. In addition to examining and dispensing, we spent long hours cleaning, sorting and measuring the donated glasses ready for the clinics.

The weather was great, we were looked after well, no-one got bitten or eaten, and we had a little time off by the lake at the end of our stay. Many thanks to David, Marie, Mike and Sarah who were such brilliant companions and workers on this expedition. And they're even thinking about going back again! In due course, I'll be creating a separate page, linked to this blog, to provide those interested with a more detailed account of the trip.
