ABOUT THE PROJECT

Join Essilor Vision Foundation (EVF) and the Singapore Optometric Association (SOA) as they embark on a mission to bring vision care to coffee farmers in Pinlaung Shan State, Myanmar. Many of whom have never had the opportunity to get their eyes checked nor are aware that they need eyeglasses. 1 in 3 people in the world do not have access to vision care because of a lack of awareness, affordability or proximity.

Shan State, Myanmar
