Gift of Sight
With all the world’s health focus now on COVID-19, most of us seem to forget the other illnesses plaguing the planet. One such major conditions is blindness.
According to the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness, it is estimated at least 2.2 billion people in the world have vision impairment. Of those, at least 1 billion cases are avoidable. One-fourth of the world’s blind population, estimated to be around 8 million, live in India.
Thanks to the support of our well-wishers, customers, partners, Choithram Netralaya continues to restore the vision of more than 76,000 needy people in India. We invite you to visit the state of Madhya Pradesh in central India through this report to experience ‘Gift of Sight’
