Asemahle and Palesa

Dr Du Toit at Eye Q fitted Asemahle and Palesa with glasses last week. Thanks to the perseverance Leigh Anne, who made lots of calls and sent lots f e mails, and Penne of Constantia Rotary,and one of our volunteers, who helped clinch the arrangement, we have managed to secure 20 pairs of frames for the year for our Shine Children. Incidentally, Asemahle's face was a little too wide for the children's glasses that were donated, so Dr Du Toit let her choose some that she liked... I believe she chose a very fancy designer frame, lucky girl! Both girls were made a huge fuss of, and it was a lovely outing for them both. Carrie and Leigh Anne, two of our links, helped complete the adventure with a little Happy Meal after the fitting. Thank you to all involved, who have made this very needed donation possible. What a wonderful web of care we have surrounding us.
