Alceneide´s glasses fell in the river
Her glasses fell into the river
Alceneide lives in a small village on the Amazon. She received her first OneDollarGlasses a year ago. The glasses are very important for her so that she can sew for her 5 children and 15 grandchildren. She tells us: “When I was recently out on the river in the jungle with my canoe, a branch hit me on the head – my glasses fell into the water and went under. In desperation I took my children to dive for the glasses.”

A three hour quest
Finally – after three hours of diving! – one of her sons finally found and brought the glasses back to the water surface. Alceneide is now beaming happily again at her sewing machine.
