Recycle Used Glasses & Hearing Aids

Refractive errors can be easily corrected with eyeglasses, yet millions living in low and middle income countries lack access to basic eye care services. Lions have recognized the urgent need for corrective lenses and collect usable glasses in their communities to support the Lions Recycle For Sight Program. 

The World Health Organization estimates that 360 million people worldwide have disabling hearing loss.  Yet, current annual production of hearing aids meets less than 10% of the global need. The Hearing Aid Recycling Program (HARP) enables Lions to provide affordable, refurbished hearing aids for individuals with limited financial resources.
