THE NEED

Your support is badly needed

Your support is badly needed. The recent (2020) Rapid Assessment of Avoidable Blindness (RAAB) Report commissioned by the Nepal Government shows that while the overall incidence of preventable blindness is reducing nationally, it is increasing in many remote areas. The statistics also show that on average 75% of preventable blindness is caused by cataracts.

Untreated cataracts have a devastating effect on social cohesion in remote communities, financial independence, and the quality of life for patient and family.

Individual Support

What your financial support provides:

£10 covers the cost of

a set of Covid compliant disposable surgical tools for one cataract operation.

£20 covers the cost of

pre operative screening and evaluation.

£70 cover the cost of

one Covid compliant cataract operation and includes medicines, surgery in a base hospital such as Kirtipur or Dhulikhel, as well as immediate post operative follow up. 

£100 covers the cost of

this standard procedure at a medical camp in remote settlements above 2000 meters (6,500ft).
