Light in the World Development Foundation – June 2018

Check out what we’ve been up to!

Creating Opportunities for Local Population

Shown above, residents of Agou, Togo, are farming the land that was donated to LWDF by the Togolese government. LWDF has a total of four hectares (nearly 10 acres), with the majority of the land being open for farming.

On June 25, 2018, Dr. Folly met with members of Tractors for Africa, a non-profit organization that delivers tractors to help people with agricultural needs. With the collaboration of Tractor for Africa, LWDF was able to yield more crops and help to decrease the risk of malnutrition. We were also able to help the Togolese people have a way of income to provide for their families and boost their economy.

Boxes of Eyeglasses

Shown above, eyeglass were donated by the Tulsa Lyons Club. LWDF took them to Togo during the medical mission trip on June 29th, 2018. Some volunteers trained to use a focometer and was able to distrubute the eyeglasses to people who came to LWDF’s clinic in Agou, Togo. They were given at no cost to the patient.  

Many Togolese people have never had access to something as simple as eyeglasses. Because of contributions from your donations, companies, organizations, we were able to purchase and provide simple, yet life-changing necessity items.
