In September, approximately 350 people were served with eye exams and received glasses by volunteers of YLM who came to the border through MOST Ministries. For many people the basics of life (food, shelter, and hygiene supplies) can be very difficult to obtain so eye glasses are often beyond their hope. However, inability to see can often effect employment options, performance and school, and lead to headaches and additional road blocks in life.
MOST Ministries came to YLM earlier this year and saw that the need was so great, they immediately wanted to return. We are thankful for both teams of volunteers and for the lifes that have been improved by the week of service and eyeglasses they provided.
