On Thursday, August 23, the YWCA and Jesters went to Pothisampan School in Naklua to test the eyes of 200 students and staff and hand out glasses provided by David Anderson from Sight First.
The optometrists first used the eye test machine to check the kids’ sight and after that they went to the next station, where another technician fine-tuned the results via test glasses with interchangeable lens based on the kids’ ability to read the eye chart.
After getting their final results, the real fun began when they went to the table covered with hundreds of glasses to pick out their choice of styles. A lot to time was spent in front of the mirrors trying on different frames, and asking for advice from their peers. And in the end, there was a lot of satisfied smiling faces

Recently, the Jesters came to the aid of poor children in the Ban Chang area who could not afford school uniforms and books.
Alerted to the situation by K. Mat, home care nurse from Ban Chang Hospital and K. Porn, director of Dek Dee Early Training Center, we met at Prasert Book Shop in Ban Chang on the morning of May 8th, where 20 families were anxiously waiting.
After buying the necessary books and uniforms they had only spent 15,300 baht from the 20,000 baht budget. Since K. Mat is constantly in touch with the poor families in the vicinity, we told her touse the remainder for other needy kids there and to issue us a receipt later.
The smiling faces were moving.
