Christwalk and CW Vision provide free eyeglasses to people of Central America by collecting and processing used eyeglasses, organizing short-term mission trips, and by operating eyeglass clinics in needy areas of the region. The focus of the work for the past three years has been the Miskito Region of Nicaragua, located on the eastern coast of Nicaragua and Honduras.
Four short-term mission trips have been conducted to Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua, where more than 1200 pairs of eyeglasses have been given to individuals who would not have access to them otherwise. This work is done through the help and in cooperation with Verbo Church of Nicaragua.
Almost anyone can go to Nicaragua on one of the trips. The cost is less than $1,000 and the time spent is usually 5 or 6 days. Although the people who receive eyeglasses benefit greatly, those who go to serve usually benefit even more. Your involvement in this ministry is encouraged and needed.
