Manchester-based optometrist Yousuf Mohammed travelled to Lebanon to provide eye care to refugees as part of Jigsaw’s Gift of Sight charity programme.

The Optical Express practitioner volunteered to help Syrian and Palestinian refugees, dispensing spectacles where needed with the multiple donating over 500 frames to the project.

‘The majority of people helped were children who may never have had an eye test and are not used to having good eyesight, so seeing their smiles light up when they first put on the glasses was amazing. It is life-changing for these children,’ Mohammed commented.
