Each year the Wisconsin Lions Camp in Rosholt, WI supplies refurbished eyeglasses to W/NP and the WI Lions for distribution in Nicaragua. Nearly 10,000 people are evaluated and fitted with eyeglasses annually by the Martin Eyeglass Project and the WI Lions Mission.
This year the Martin Project is traveling to rural communities in the Esteli and Jinotega areas of Nicaragua. Click here for photos.
Significant planning and resources from a vast group of participants, make clear sight and improved vision a reality for many who otherwise may have no other options. This project is made possible by Lions International. There are approximately 20 Lions centers worldwide that coordinate, sort, clean, categorize, box and label donated eyeglasses to prepare for distribution to developing countries such as Nicaragua.
