I have not so recently realized that eyeglasses are not expensive but many needy people do not have it. The reason for such a situation is that a lot of the deprived ones are not actually aware of such need. What I found just recently are kids in public schools who are thought to be slow in absorbing class lessons. A close examination however, showed that the kids actually have weak eyesight and that made them unable to properly read what teachers are writing in the board. The kids then develop short attention spans and tend to daydream or simply play at the back of the overstuffed classrooms. It only took a small amount of money and hundreds of kids now have new eyeglasses. They can now study and hopefully, they will grow up better armed to face this cruel world.
