This past week, thanks to the efforts of our Coastal Rep/ Treasurer Luis Galarza, Helping Kids in Ecuador supplied exams and lenses to 15 children in Salinas, Santa Elena Province.
Luis had children referred from Melvin Jones School, and the local public hospital, Roberto Gilbert Hospital in GYE. Two children had received scripts last year for glasses but the families had no money to buy them.
Now 15 children from very poor homes have a chance to learn and have a normal life.
Over 700 children helped by HKIE thanks to our continued support by you, our donors!
Thank you Luis and the GOP Eye Clinic in La Liberdad for their generosity in providing low cost exams and glasses.
