New Eyes for the Needy is a non-profit organization started in 1932 (incorporated 1948) and based in Short Hills, New Jersey, which provides people in the United States with eyeglasses and sends recycled eyeglasses to needy people overseas.
The group's vision or mission statement is: "To improve the vision of poor children and adults by purchasing new eyeglasses in the United States and recycling donated glasses for distribution in developing nations worldwide."
The organization was founded by Julia Lawrence Terry in 1932 in Short Hills, New Jersey. Terry worked in the Red Cross during the Great Depression and realized the need for eyeglasses in the US. Area residents donated basement space for sorting eyeglasses.
By the end of the 1940s, the organization was...
Vorige week bezocht ik het filmhuis voor de film ‘Problemski Hotel’ naar het boek van Dimitri Verhulst. In deze film citeert de hoofdpersoon Bipul enige keren een aantal zinnen uit het gedicht ‘The Waste land’ van T. S. Eliot (1888 – 1965) en dan met name de regels uit de eerste strofe ‘April is the cruelest month’. De eerste 7 regels van de eerste strofe bevatten deze regels. In deze regels noemt T. S. Eliot April een wrede maand terwijl wij hier in het Westen April zien als de maand dat de Lente begint. In dit gedicht spreekt een getormenteerd mens. In plaats van het mooie nieuwe te zien voelt de dichter hier een pijnlijke opluchting en brengt dit pijnlijke herinneringen bij hem boven. In de film verwijzen deze regels naar de problemen en uitzichtloosheid van de vluchtelingen in de opvang (het Problemski Hotel).

Sometimes, it’s difficult to read for me. I squint at small text and it gives me a headache sometimes. Because of that, I finally decided to get some eyeglasses just for reading. While before words were hard to make out without squinting, now I can read with my eyes open wide. And since I got a durable and reliable pair of mens eyeglasses , I’m certainly going to be using them for a long time still.
