Disease prevention and treatment is one of Rotary’s six Areas of Focus.

Sun Glasses for Nepal Sherpas

400 sun glasses donated by a UK Eyewear company were delivered to Nepal’s mountain sherpas

Our club brokered a contact between a UK Eyewear company and Nepal’s Mountain Porters’ Charity to supply 400 sun glasses to mountain porters. Poverty prevents most sherpas from buying protective eyewear and they invariably suffer blindness due to the sun 's reflections from the snow.
