Tanzanian Specs Amnesty

The Tanzanian Specs Amnesty

Pre-Paid Legal Services in conjunction with the Health Insurance Fund of Western Australia (HIF) launched the "specs amnesty", to collect unneeded pairs of glasses to be sent to Tanzania to be distributed to local villages who cannot afford glasses and would otherwise have no access to eye care.

Members and the general public were encouraged to participate and to drop off their old glasses into PPL's office and other designated drop off points so that they could be collected and shipped to the small Tanzanian village known as the Kahama District.

This initiative was aimed at bringing a whole new lease of life to the many hundreds of visually impaired people in the Kahama District, especially children and the elderly.
