Mozambique is one of the poorest countries in the world. Most Mozambicans live well below the poverty line and rely on small scale subsistence agriculture.
The Send your Sunglasses Project aims to facilitate the collection of redundant and second hand sunglasses and reading glasses for distribution to three “bush clinics” in Central and Northern Mozambique on an on-going basis.
The optical goods are sent to clinics managed by LoveMozambique, run by Francois and Alta Rauch. They have lived in Mucombeze, Manica Province, Mozambique for many years. LoveMozambique has a blog where you can get a feeling for what they do on a daily basis. It can be found at http://www.lovemoz.blogspot.com/
