The Glassco Foundation is a Canadian charity registered in 1996 with global outreach projects in the fields of health, children and clean drinking water.   In 2003 and 2004 they took a medical team to the Kusaka Eye Hospital in Zambia to performing a range of surgical procedures including operating on children who were born with cataracts due to poor drinking water and health conditions and therefore giving the blind sight for the first time.  Originally they were able to help with the huge backlog of cases but the goal was to pass along new operating techniques to the local medical personnel.

Since then they have continued to support cataract surgeries and have initiated a program to provide emergency care to the children in the remote Gwembe Valley. 
 
The Hamilton East Rotary has given ongoing financial support on a yearly basis to help with this worthy project.
