Hundreds of thousands of glasses for Bangladesh
Catherine Berthillier announced Tuesday, November 20, 2012 Shamengo that would help Focus on Vision to distribute hundreds of thousands of pairs of glasses in Bangladesh.
This announcement was made during a Tuesday evening 'Alter-Mardis' on which Focus on Vision ambassador Jan in 't Veld gave a presentation about Focus on Vision's project for bringing eyesight to the world through adjustable spectacles.
The presence in Paris of Jan 't Veld is due to a previous 'Alter-Mardis' evening that gave pride to Shamengo and its pioneers. The evening, held at the Economic opportunity, showcased twenty Shamengo videos to the public. The public then voted for their favorite video in order to meet the organisation behind the video. They elected the Focus on Vision project as their favorite.
