Essilor-SINDA ‘Kids Vision for Life’ Eye Care camp was a strategic philanthropic collaboration between Essilor’s Vision Foundation (the charitable arm of Essilor, a world leader in lense manufacturing), SINDA (a Singapore based self help group), Singapore Polytechnic (a leading Singapore educational institution), BridgeAble and NPS (NPS International School, Singapore).
The eye camp was conducted from 19-21 May, 2014. Approximately 300 students from low income families chosen by SINDA underwent eye examinations at the Singapore Polytechnic’s Optometric Department. Students who needed corrective measures were given corrective lenses.
BridgeAble worked with Essilor and SINDA in conceptualizing and planning the event. BridgeAble also brought in NPS as a donor partner for the frames.
