Why Kowy® Cares ?
The numbers of underprivileged families worldwide who need eyeglasses and optical care is alarming. The World Health Organization reports approximately 517 million people in developing countries are visually impaired because they do not have access to corrective treatment. The Centre for Vision in the Developing World at Oxford University has a higher estimate: More than 1 billion people need but do not get vision correction.
Kowy® intends to contribute, and give back by helping children and adults obtain proper optical care. Eye care and eyeglasses should be available for everyone.
Visual impairment is more than just a health problem. It has economic, educational, and public safety implications. Having the proper prescription lenses if needed is key for children´s learning abilities, and adults overall health and well-being.
We want to spread the word – we believe everyone can help somehow, there are millions of people around the World who need vision services. By partnering with schools and eyecare professionals, we are able to provide vision exams and glasses to those in need. And so can you.
Finding a way to help children get optical care
We contacted a local charity school and found out their main problem was actually the high price for the eye exams.
Our first student, a six-year-old girl was examined on January 23, 2017, even before sales started at Kowy®.
And this is just the beginning. Kowy® Cares and we want to share so you can care together with us.
Anyone can help, we want to spread the word that a word, a caring word, can reach further than money. Connecting people we reach further horizons.
