Untreated cataracts have a devastating effect on social cohesion in remote communities, financial independence, and the quality of life for patient and family.
Your donation will help reduce avoidable blindness in the high altitude regions of Nepal where access to the remote communities above 2000 meters becomes increasing difficult. Roads are rough and subject to damage and landslides every monsoon season.
The camps include eye health screening, eye operations, treatments and post-op care. The support of our partner hospitals will expand the training of eye health workers improving the social capital in Nepal.
If you are a business or organisation that works in the ophthalmic sector, have an affinity with Nepal, or just want to improve the lives of impoverished communities in remote and high altitude areas, and would like to learn more about our work, or support it – please contact us.
