ON 14 October, we had another Community Service Project
this project is called Vision 2020
Where 200 students were given free eye screening and out of that 44 were found to be short sighted and prescription glasses were made for them, free. Today was presentation day.
This is the school that benefited from this project: BK 1 school
right opposite the row of shops in Section 1
where we had a nice breakfast before starting the project...I had wantan mee!
Jenny and William busy sorting out the glasses according to the classes and names
to facilitate presenting the spectacles to the students when their names are called
President Jimmy and treasurer Francis attended the ceremony too
me, Jimmy and the headmistress, I am seated here because I am asked to translate what he says to Malay
the other organisers now take their place: Rina and Jenny.
Headmistress gives her opening address
the students beneficiaries
held at the meeting room
President Jimmy giving his speech in English
and tells me what to translate
banking on my Malay language knowledge!!
Next time I must get pen and paper ready to translate on the spot what President says so I can do a good job!
Now presentation ceremony is about to begin
Malay, and Indian students,..regardless of race, all gets the gift of sight (glasses lah)
optician adjusts and teach them how to care for the free spectacles
he teaches them how to handle and put them on to maximise usage of the glasses
these are the students who benefited from this scheme
And we take a picture for documentation purposes.
Day well spent!
