New Eyes for Kentucky

Dear New Eyes Supporter,

It has been a very busy period since I last wrote a report in June. The coronavirus pandemic has thrown many families into unexpected fnancial need, losing jobs and health insurance. Our demand from Kentucky has been quite strong because of those very reasons.

Since June, New Eyes has provided 866 Kentucky residents with clear vision through new prescription eyeglasses. This represents the highest number of Kentucky residents we have helped in a four month period, ever, Thanks to your support, these individuals can see clearly to obtain a better education (either remotely or in school), seek employment and to live safely and independently. We assisted 200 children, 412 women and 254 men, ranging in ages from 2 to 91 years old. GlobalGiving donors enabled 20 of these individuals to get the clear vision necessary to improve their lives. Thank you. We are so very grateful for your generosity.

New Eyes stands firm providing new eyeglasses to children and adults in need. While other organizations have had to suspend their vision clinics, mobile eye vans and other operations, New Eyes has remained open to assist those under financial stress who are now finding themselves unexpectedly in need due to the effects of the pandeic. Since 1932, New Eyes has continuously served the neediest and most vulnerable among us. And we will always be there for them. 

Never forget that you make this kind of difference in needy Kentucky lives:
