For more than 25 years, Unto has leveraged strategic global partnerships to relieve suffering through humanitarian aid. Through your gift of eyeglasses you can help open doors for ministry and provide Cru staff teams with:
Andre, our Tanzanian team leader, shared:
“When it comes to the various clinics … it gives [our staff] something to really make an impact that we can point people towards … to say this is God’s love towards them, allowing them to be able to even read now because they can be able to see.”
This year our Cru partners have requested more than 15,000 pairs of eyeglasses that will be distributed in 13 countries. They arrange the location for each clinic, spread the word in their communities, and organize local volunteers.
Will you help meet this critical need for thousands who long to see clearly?
Through the one-on-one interaction that a vision clinic provides, you can help relieve the suffering of those struggling to see, restore their dignity, and reveal the eternal hope of Jesus to them.
Zacharia works as a tailor. But at 80 years of age, it was becoming increasingly difficult for him to see his work. He was among the hundreds of people who lined up at the vision clinic hosted by our local partners in his rural Tanzanian village.
After waiting in line, it was his turn to receive glasses. He tried on several pairs but could not decide which pair helped him see the best.
One of our team members found a needle and thread tucked inside a supply kit and handed it to Zacharia. Suddenly, everything was clear! Zacharia immediately knew which pair of glasses allowed him to see his work clearly.
Over the course of six days, our Tanzanian partners with Cru hosted three vision clinics in remote villages. They fitted 1,114 people with glasses. They also shared the hope of Jesus with more than 1,100 individuals and 367 people responded.
YOU can be a part of more stories like Zacharia’s — helping give clear sight and sharing the eternal hope of Jesus in the toughest places.
Over the course of almost 30 years of operation, Unto has leveraged strategic global partnerships and the service of dedicated volunteers to relieve suffering through humanitarian aid in more than 75 countries. Unto serves people around the world as part of Cru’s diverse, 190-country network.
