Eye program description

Program Description

While cataracts can be treated with a simple surgery. evidence suggests that lack of money is a major barrier to uptake of cataract surgery among the poor. 60% of the poor who are affected by cataracts turn blind due to financial constraints. Poverty deprives them of access to healthcare and bad health deprives them of an income. The Genesis Social  Welfare Foundation attempts to provide free adult cataract surgeries. The revenue generated from the NGO's paying section partially subsidizes the community eye care services and the rest is covered through donations. This program runs in rural areas of Jharkhand. The majority of the patients in this program are underprivileged adults who come from rural areas about 150 km away from the hospital. The program provides them with free surgery, spectacles, stay, food, and transport to the villages. Support this program to sponsor a cataract surgery and save a patient from going blind forever.

we need Rs.5,00,000 more for the Providing free medical eye program. Please come forward to support my cause. Any contribution will be of immense help. Do contribute and share this campaign link with your friends and family.
