SOL EDUCATION CAMPS – Konstantin Hahne

I have been part of Shades Of Love since 2018 and would like to bring in my knowledge in ophthalmic optics / optometry.
As an ambassador, I try to optimize the ‘Free Eye Education Camps’ founded by Eik Bruns and myself and protect people from health problems by teaching them about the harmful UV light.

Shades of Love starts with first education camps – Pt. II

Feedback from the two opticians Konstantin Hahne and Eik Bruns, from their mission in Ladakh.

“We’ve organized a map with some regions worth distributing more sunglasses in the future, exact numbers of inhabitants were hard to get, but the total number of 20,000 – 25,000 people living in remote areas and in urgent need of sunglasses were confirmed by two sides.”

“In addition, we have made a good contact with David Sonam of the REWA Society here in Leh. REWA works with handicapped children from the region and does physical therapy with them and some school education. REWA is supported by Ladakh Hilfe e.V. Germany. He introduced us to a nearby Moravian School and the next day we were able to teach classes 2-10 and a total of approximately 800 childs. He has been very supportive and we can also expect help in the future.”

Enclosed more footage with a few highlights.

Shades of Love starts with first education camps

The two optometrists Konstantin Hahne and Eik Bruns, who are currently completing an additional training in Berlin at the University of Optometry, have set out for Ladakh for two and a half months at their own expense.

They are now working with our Tibetan Primary Health Care Center partner on one of our key projects: in mid-October, they held our first SHADES OF LOVE FREE EYE EDUCATION CAMP in Sumo, a small village in the remote Changtang region of Ladakh.

With charts and simple illustrations, the two, together with representatives of the Tibetan Health Care Center, are clarifying the effects of sunlight. What are UV rays? What consequences does it have if you do not protect yourself? Up to information about the cleaning and care of glasses.

Konstantin and Eik are still on the road until mid-December. The project will be continued by our partners in the future – the goal is to achieve a systematic coverage with medical teams in the field of education and distribution of our Shades Of Love sunglasses.
