Deputy Mayor Lae Boon­singh welcomed members from the First Sight Foundation and Fountain Foundation who provided free spectacles May 16 following eye examinations earlier this year.

Fountain Foundation representatives said the glasses were provided through the First Sight Foundation of the U.S. and its Thailand branch.

Both organizations have been going around to visit local communities for the past 7 years, measuring eye sights and supporting local residents in need. In 2017, during their previous visit to Nong Plalai they found that more than 200 residents were in need of glasses.

The demand was so great, the opticians ran short of materials and had to come back again.
