São Vicente: “See with good eyes” project aims to donate about 600 glasses to children from the northern part of islands

Mindelo, Jun 27 (Inforpress) – The fourth edition of the “See with good eyes” project, which currently carries out ophthalmology consultations, in Mindelo, aims to donate about 600 glasses to disadvantaged children from São Vicente, Santo Antão and São Nicolau.

With this fourth edition of the project, which emerges from the partnerships between the Cavibel company, main promoter, Ficase and the Spanish foundation Ruta de la Luz, are intended, according to Cavibel’s marketing assistant, Wilma Gomes, to cover the northern counties of the country.

“Together with these partnerships, we have been able to carry out and grow this project that has been in place since 2014”, she told Inforpress, adding that they are expecting to donate 600 glasses, but if other children appear they will also be included.

“The goal is to see as many children as possible from families with more socio-economic difficulties and to improve their conditions of teaching learning”, she said, adding that basic screening is done by teachers in classrooms and then by two technicians.
