Himalaya

80% of the population living at more than 3000m altitude suffer from irreversible ocular lesions, causing an exodus of the mountain areas. We collect the sunglasses that you no longer wear to give them a new life.

The glasses are transported in partnership with the NGO Shades of Love in the Himalayas and in the Andes in the most isolated villages, often accessible after several days of walking or motorcycling.

Each pair of Pascal Mathieu sunglasses you buy helps finances the collect, cleaning, transport and distribution of 10 pairs.

Collection Boxes

With the support of the participating municipalities as well as the Compagnie du Mont-Blanc Foundation and the Compagnie des Guides de Chamonix, collection boxes are at your disposal.

  • Useable sunglasses and ski goggles, as well as the cases
  • Sunglasses for children
  • Preferably only sunglasses without prescription
  • Each pair is reconditioned and sent directly to the population
  • Three convoys have already departed for the Himalayas in April and September 2018 and in April 2019
  • Next convoy will depart on September 10th, 2019
  • Every pair counts, spread the word! Talk to your friends, colleagues and family
  • If you have a large quantity of pairs or for any question, do not hesitate to contact us: collecte@pascalmathieu.com
