Lunettes gratuites


As the improved School Health Program introduced by the Ministries of Health and Education took hold, the need to give care to children found to have refractive errors has dramatically increased. While most families can buy their children corrective spectacles, such a simple solution to refractive errors is inabordable to those living in remote and poorer districts.For years, with generous support from such donors as Aide au Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh Eye Hospital has been able to help these kids get the much-needed optical intervention so that they can attend all school activities like any other kids. This year, we are going to ask Aide au Vietnam once again to assist us bring help to these underprivileged children, especially those from remote districts in Ho Chi Minh City as well as from the outlying districts of other provinces.


Goal: by providing free spectacles, to help poor students suffering from uncorrected refractive errors who cannot afford optical correction gain good eyesight

Aim: to provide 1,500 pairs of glasses free of charge

Place: the project is to be implemented in poorer districts in HCMC, Ben Tre, Dong Nai, Long An, Tay Ninh

Time: January to December 2018

Eligibility criteria: primary school students, i.e. first to fifth grades, who have failed vision test AND are from poor families. Eligible students are to be selected by their respective schools.


First half 0f 2018 – Preparation work – September and October 2018

Vision screening at schools (by professional medical teams and within the school health program)

Short listing those who have failed screening test, and then selecting those from poor families

Refracting selected children at the schools (2 schools per district) most convenient for the children. A stock of frames is displayed on site for the students to choose from.

Spectacles are cut to individual measurements and assembled on to chosen frames at optics shops. This is done at home base shops in HCMC.

Completed glasses are delivered to schools within 1-2 weeks in a small ceremony held by district education boards. The project must be finished by the end of December, before the first term examination of the academic year.

Quality control: supplier(s) must provide sample frames for approval by HCMC Eye Hospital and for the purpose of reference should a dispute arises over quality of frames and/or spectacles. All glasses have a 6-month guarantee against defects or workmanship errors.

Budget estimates : (*) The total estimated budget is equivalent to € 15,464,00 at the time of writing.

Aide Au Vietnam a participé à un nouveau programme du CFSOC : Lunettes pour les écoliers  en primaire et secondaire, issus de familles démunies au Vietnam.

En plus, les parents de ces enfants n’ont souvent pas le temps pour s’occuper de leur santé, e.a. aussi des erreurs de réfraction jamais diagnostiqués et forcément pas traités.

L’équipe du CFSOC se déplace donc à leurs écoles pour faire les tests individuels et par la suite pour la distribution des lunettes.

Avec le financement de € 35.712,00 :  4.482 paires de lunettes, (€ 12,00 la paire), ont pu être distribuées à la fin 2018 aux écoliers dans le Sud du Vietnam.

En plus, 1.044 paires de lunettes de lecture ont été distribuées gratuitement aux personnes âgées pauvres.

Dear Mrs. Menné, Greetings from Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
We hope this find you well.

A new year is already on our doorstep, and we are writing you again with another request for grant funding for our humanitarian cataract surgery program. The year 2017 has been a very succesful one for us at the Community Eye Care and Training

Center, Ho Chi Minh City Eye Hospital. With over 5,000 cataract operations performed at low-to-no-cost to poor patients in the past year, we have done a great part in alleviating cataract blindness in Vietnam. We could not have accomplished such a wonderful feat without your aid.

Your generous support has helped subsidize part of the cost of the surgical operations so that poor people with blinding cataract can get treatment for free or at a low, affordable cost. The number of patients benefiting from this kind of activity is limited only by available funding. Every year, we need a steady financial support to maintain the service and provide more opportunities to the needy community at large.

On behalves of those poor patients, we herewith would like to request your support again, for funding for 500 cataract surgeries in the year 2018 (The cost of 1 case is VND 700.000, so it will cost VND350 million in total). This fund is much needed to give those affected by blinding cataract a chance to see again.

Thank you for your past support, and for consideration of our request. We would like to wish you and all other AAV members a successful and prosperous new year.


Ho Chi Minh City Eye Hospital, Vietnam.
