Recycle for sight

Lions Recycle for Sight is part of Lions Clubs International Worldwide Eyeglass Recycling Program, with headquarters in Queensland and operating throughout Australia and overseas.

Over the 26 years that the Australian program has been operating, the program has delivered over 7 million pairs of refurbished quality spectacles to men, women and children in need in Africa, Europe, Middle East, India Sub-continent, East Asia, Far East China, the countries of the Pacific Rim and Southern Asia and Oceania. In the past 10 years several members of the Lions Marine Branch have been able to use their oceangoing yachts to reach and test the eyesight of villagers in the remotest areas and deliver spectacles to them.

Each Year Bairnsdale Lions collect over 2000 pairs of glasses and donate them to the project.
