A nurse's work is improved with the provision of a pair of glasses.

Worku has worked as a nurse in the Amhara region of Ethiopia for over 25 years and specialises in midwifery. He had been struggling to stitch wounds and read medications, case notes and referral documentation after developing vision difficulties 7 years ago.

A team of Professional Volunteers met Worku last year and provided him with a free eye test and a pair of glasses. After receiving his brand new pair of glasses, Worku said:

Now I can see the small letters and read very clearly. This will really help me to do my job.

Without clear vision children can’t learn to get an education and adults can’t earn to care for their families and contribute to their communities. However, you can make all the difference today by making a donation.
