While I was in Yemen, and particularly in Sana'a, I came across to see many poor citizens who were suffering from eye sight problem. These poor citizens were not able to afford to buy tested eye glasses as the prices are too high for them.
Can I request from wealthy businessmen in Yemen to establish a free eye camp every 3 months or so with eye specialists and provide free tested eye glasses with frames to the poor citizens.
