“In all my working life I have never seen any day like today”
In late October, Essilor Vision Foundation joined hands with Singapore-based NGO Humanitarian with Love to complete its second medical mission in Hin Huep Village, Laos. Over 2,000 people attended the camp for basic health screening activities such as dental, general health check-up, traditional chinese medicine and vision testing. Over 1,000 had their vision tested and 70% of whom were given a free pair of corrective glasses. Many villagers were thankful to receive a free pair of sunglasses upon finishing their vision test.
