Spectacles to Senegal

Ruth Perrott and Ann Morgan visited the Casamance region of Southern Senegal at the invitation of the Diatta family from York in February 2014.

Whilst there they travelled by road and water providing both refraction clinics and spectacles to the local rural population from a base in Ousouye.

The spectacles were sourced from donations made by individuals, Rotary Clubs, Lions Clubs, Churches and other groups in Yorkshire and then sorted by Rotary York Ainsty as part of their community SpecSort programme.
