“Thank you so much for helping me with my new eyesight. I can now navigate the streets better and start sewing again as I was a tailor in my country. My hope is to start a new life in the United States and you help me by providing me with a new pair of glasses. It makes me feel happy. Thank you from all my heart.”

“Hi! My name is Toni Marie and I am the school social worker at Ivy Hill Elementary. A fourth grade student of mine was referred to your agency by me. Within a week of mailing in the referral she received her voucher for glasses. Today she walked into my office to show me her new glasses. She is so proud and happy. She reported that “my vision is better, I’m able to see the board, and I can complete my work”. Thank you so much for the wonderful work that your agency does. Your agency is truly making a difference in the lives of children. Thanks again!”
