The EYE Train in Action
Wow, what a fantastic opportunity, an old train was renovated and transformed into an Eye Train. Now locals have access to a complete exam room. Thanks to the generous and numerous donations, we were able to equip the train will all the necessary equipment to perform a complete eye exam. Glasses and frames have been collected all over Canada and a large shipment has been sent to the train for distribution. Even more is that we have the means to supply the train for many years to come with all those donated frames at various eye doctor's office here in Canada.
A BIG thank you to Nica Roma who supervised the project and made it happen. She was there from the beginning and watch the entire process every day to make sure it was done to her standards.
Thanks to Dr. Allan Jones and Dr. Pasqualino Marcantonio who contributed immensely in the project with personal and financial contribution, the train has been functional for a year now and is almost self sustaining. People from the Phillipines are ask to make a donation for the service and glasses received if possible, that helps sustain the basic needs for the train such as electricity and water.
