(PRESS RELEASE) On June 25t, the Etnia Barcelona Foundation launches its “Opticians With You” program, an international charitable project aimed at helping families negatively impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.

Since 2016, the Etnia Barcelona Foundation has supported nearly 50,000 families and, in particular, children from different social backgrounds, given the direct correlation between vision problems, dropout rates and social integration difficulties. This project aims to work to improve their visual health and quality of life.

Given the current situation, the Etnia Barcelona Foundation has decided to expand its sphere of action and is taking the Opticians With You project even further.

This project was created to personally help individuals whose economic possibilities have suffered as a result of the pandemic. The Foundation, with the collaboration of opticians around the world, will send 150,000 frames from the brand, completely free of charge, to vulnerable individuals or families who need glasses and do not have access to them as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.

The project, which defends the right of individuals to have correct vision and a better quality of life, will be implemented through the opticians that participate in the Foundation’s Non-Profit Opticians program. These opticians play a fundamental role in identifying individuals or families in their communities that are going through hard times financially. They become the Foundation’s eyes to detect and offer this help to anyone who needs it.

The Foundation’s usual partners have decided to join in on the initiative because they understand that this charitable endeavor is fundamental when we are faced with a global crisis. Opticians With You will be launched on June 25th and run until December 31st. It will allow many families to access the eye care they need to improve their quality of life.
