Glasses donation!

I wear glasses and I have around 8 or 9 pairs if good condition designer glasses from specsavers that are no good to me any more as my perscription changes everytime I go for eye test.

I would like to give them to a hospital or even eye hospital whilst I am at Diani sea resort, is there any near by?

The Lighthouse eye charity is in Abdel Nasser Rd, Mombasa. I contacted them prior to my visit and they were happy to receive donations of glasses. I took about 30 pairs that I had collectected from friends and relations (it seems all glasses wearers have several pairs lost in drawers) . I also took a bin bag of clothes that I had worn for my 2 week trip but did not want to take home. I always take older clothes to developing countries and leave them there as I find the local washing and hard travelling can wreck anything decent. Unfortunately , I got the impression that the clothes would not make it to the hospital patients for whom the donation was intended , as the female staff were like a pack of locusts around the bag.
