Free eyewear for Phuket adults and elderlyOn 24th April 2013 at Muang Thalang School, Phuket Governor – Maitree Intusut presided over the event “Free Eyewear for the Elderly” together with Phuket Vice Governor – Sommai Preechasil and members of the Thai Red Cross Children Home Foundation.

Dr Sommai said “If the elderly people need to take care of children but their vision isn’t clear then that is a big obstacle for them, it also causes a problem for their families who need to go out to work to make an income. Therefore, the Thai Red Cross Children Home Foundation has now been given support from Top Charoen Optical, which I now sponsoring a project where people over the age of 45 will be given free eye tests and glasses should they be required.  The foundation has organized activities all over Thailand and they have now come to help Phuket’s people.
