A while ago six Danish opticians and a nurse from the opticians company Nyt Syn traveled out to Gambia and Senegal to perform eye tests and fitted the people with glasses. Over 70.000 people across Denmark donated their glasses which are now giving joy and happiness to all these people. Photographer Joachim Ladefoged took some amazing images of some of the lucky ones.via afroklectic.
