August 23 was an exciting day for many school children at Photisampan School on Naklua Road, since technicians of B&V Optik came to check their eyesight and those of their teachers.
Nittaya Patimasongkroh, the chairwoman of this YWCA project, was in attendance to see that everything went smoothly. YWCA and Jesters Care for Kids paid for the glasses while B&V Optik gave the check ups for free.
Once the children’s eyes were checked, those that were found to need glasses were allowed to choose their own style. Teachers were given the same opportunity.
Nittaya said that this was the first of three such events, the next two coming at a school yet to be named and at the Banglamung Home for the Aged.
