When the project ends at the end of this month, the old spectacles will be packed and flown to the Lions Club International Eyeglasses Recycling Centre in Sri Lanka, where they will be classified by prescription and will be cleaned and repaired, then distributed to the under-privileged in the poor countries of Africa, Asia and Central America.
