PANAMA

“I write to you from Cay Paloma where Harold was responsible for the delivery of New Eyes for the Needy glasses to the Ngobe Indians of the most rural parts of Panama.

Through Peace Corps-Panama, I have been working to promote the advancement of rural women by teaching business skills and applying those skills to their new artisan trade, jewelry made of coconut shells. The women wanted to find glasses for the farsighted elderly of the village. With your donation, glasses reached far more abuelitos than they ever could have imagined. I assure you the used glasses you collect make true differences in the lives of those who could never afford such a luxury.”

Elyssa, a Peace Corp Worker in Panama
