Gi brillene dine nytt liv

Vil du være med å hjelpe barn i Tanzania? Det kan du, om du er brillebruker! Specksavers er nemlig igang med med en omfattende brilleinnsamling, og denne aksjonen trigget ihvertfall meg. Jeg har mange gamle briller i skuffene som jeg ikke kan bruke på grunn av at synet mitt har endret seg, og nå har jeg endelig en god grunn til å få de ut av huset – og det med god samvittighet :)

Her er mitt bidrag:


I tillegg har kjæresten to par som han ikke bruker lenger, så det blir jo en hel del briller :)

Så om du eller bestemor sitter på et par ubrukte briller, så ta de med til nærmeste Specksavers-butikk og gi dem nytt liv :)

Her er litt mer om brilleinnsamlingen:

Tanzania er et av verdens fattigste land. Flere millioner av landets innbyggere har vanskelig for å prioritere annet enn anskaffelse av mat og drikke til sine barn. Andre viktige behov som synsundersøkelser og briller må nedprioriteres. Specsavers reiser derfor årlig til Tanzania for å foreta synsundersøkelser og hjelpe de som trenger briller. Brillene samler vi inn fra nordmenn som har briller de ikke lenger bruker. Så langt har man i et felles løft i de nordiske landene klart å hjelpe 20.000 mennesker med briller.


Konsekvensene av å ikke ha briller kan være store. Foreldre har kanskje ikke muligheten til å jobbe for å gi barna sine mat, mens barn ikke har mulighet til å følge med på skolen. Da vi besøkte Tanzania i februar traff vi mange barn som ikke hadde briller, men store synsutfordringer. Andre kom med briller som var reparert med ståltråd og strikk for at de skulle henge sammen. Størst inntrykk gjorde kanskje tiåringen som aldri hadde lært å lese. Han hadde -10 i styrke og hadde ingen muligheter til å følge med på skole eller delta i andres lek. Heldigvis klarte vi å hjelpe ham med et par briller og har nå alle muligheter til å lære det alle andre kan.

Specsavers klarer imidlertid ikke dette arbeidet alene. Vi er helt avhengig av at noen donerer brillene de ikke lenger bruker. Disse brillene kan endre livet til mange mennesker. Vi må imidlertid klare å spre budskapet. Derfor henvender vi oss til deg og håper at du kan skrive noen linjer om dette på bloggen din og oppfordre folk til å ta med seg sine avlagte briller til en av våre butikker. Bruker man ikke briller selv kan man for eksempel samle inn hos venner eller familie. Det viktigste er at vi klarer å få samlet inn nok briller til å hjelpe de som har behov, men ikke midler. Vi kan bokstavelig talt gi noen et nytt syn på livet.
