In the Himalayas and the Andes, the majority of the population live in extremely remote regions at an altitude of 2,500 to 5,000 meters – and are exposed to the sun (and thus the harmful UV rays) all year round. Almost 80% of the population suffers from severe eye diseases and inflammations. Many can no longer pursue their work and are thus threatened in their existence. It could be so easy to prevent: with sunglasses.
SHADES OF LOVE collects new and used sunglasses and distributes them in the remote high mountain regions.
All collected sunglasses will ensure that the UV protection is at least 300/400 and each pair of glasses will be carefully cleaned by professional opticians.
We look forward to your support – be it in the form of sunglasses or financially for the shipping of the glasses.
Thank you for your interest.
