In Classic Alpaca, we are committed to the needs of small producers working with us in the city of Huancayo, mostly disadvantaged craftsman. As a full-time weaver, they are more likely to reduce their vision closely as years go by what would affect their quality of life. In order to avoid that, we decided to organize an ophthalmologist campaign in the framework of social responsibility and fair trade.
The free campaign was carried out on 17 and 18 December 2018 in the city of Huancayo where we have the highest number of craftsman and weavers. For two days, the team of specialists examined 45 craftsman working in our local in the city already mentioned, distributing prescription glasses for patients in need.
For this campaign, we contacted an optical center with specialized professionals in the care of the eye and modern equipment to ensure that good services and evaluation is provided to our producers. All costs related to this campaign, eye tests and frames were covered by Classic Alpaca.
The most rewarding thing about this campaign was that we were able to help these artisans and families enjoy a better quality of life, as most of them depend on their eyesight to support their family. It has been very nice to be part of this organized event with a lot of love four our producers and artisans.
