We would like to repeat this beautiful project in the fall of 2016. We will be more than happy if your organization can assist us to realize the screening of all elementary school children this year. Our Club has been involved in sight projects on the island for the past 45 years and have done eye screening and have donated hundreds of eyeglasses to the less fortunate and children. We would appreciate if you could accept to come down to Sint Maarten and screen the eyes of our children and senior citizens.
