This activity is supported by HT Foundation , TGIF Care Group, and Soedarjo Foundation.  There were many TGIF Care Group members who volunteered their time to make this activity a success.

This activity was started with registration, snack distribution to the participants whose eyes would be examined.  After that, the participants were seated to wait for their turn to be examined with eye exam machine.  After the machine exam, the participants underwent manual eye exam to confirm the result from the machine.  For those whose eye only suffered minus 0.5, they will not qualify for new spectacles.

For those who qualified to get spectacles, they were asked to choose the frame and their choice will be registered by YKI.  YKI will then execute orders to the spectacle vendor.
