Eye Care
When visiting Kasavai In 2008 Terry and Sandy Kensler learned that poor eyesight may have been hindering some widows who wanted to sew and those who just wanted to read their Bibles ant home or at church.
Antonina had cataracts in
2008 and could barely see,
even with thick glasses.
Now she sees without glasses after cataract surgery.
In 2008, with the assistance of Rajinder "Pape" Sembi of the Kakamega Lions Club and Dr. Demissie Tadesse of the Sabatia Eye Hospital and its mobile eye clinic, CLOUT Cares obtained eye exams, glasses, medications, and cataract surgery for the widows and anybody else in the village in need of these services - all at no cost to them.
We thank the Madison and Killingworth CT Lions, the Lions of Kakamega, and the Sabatia Eye Hospital in Kenya for their help. Their unselfish acts brought the widows one step closer to the self-sufficiency they enjoyed before AIDS took it away.
In 2012 CLOUT Cares took an additional 250 pairsof prescription and reading glasses donated by the Killingworth Connecticut Lions and Leos to the Sabatia Eye Hospital for free distribution to anybody who came to the hospital in need of them.  We took an additional 100 pairsof reading glasses to the widows and their children at the same time .  Thank you all!
In 2014 we we able to supply another 100 pairs of reading glasses to replace those broken, lost, lent, or given to others.  We now keep a supply at the CLOUT "office" in Kasavai to give freely to anybody needing them.  And, each year we try to take more.
