ABOUT THE PROJECT

Looking at how to further support ASEAN countries during this pandemic, Essilor Vision Foundation (EVF) ASEAN started a regional safety eyewear product support initiative, with the support of Essilor Social Impact, for frontliners in various countries.

ASEAN

Duration: 3 months
Eyewear give: More than 7,000

The foundation worked with different Essilor entities to provide safety eyewear for frontline healthcare workers, police officers and other essential functions in their countries. This support was a huge boost to the frontliners as they continue to battle the spread of the outbreak, while protecting their eyes.
