Main objective of the project to Improve the sight of the underprivileged across Sri Lanka by leading screening camps to follow with tailor-made glasses and cataract surgeries. And also Increase awareness of common eye diseases, eye health and disease, treatment and prevention. Moreover, educate people about the effects of preventable causes such as Diabetes, high blood pressure, Cholesterol, Glaucoma, Trachoma, the benefits of cataract surgery and common preventable domestic and other accidents that cause eye related complications.
Young people and seniors suffering from vision disorders in rural Sri Lanka will benefit from the project. All these beneficiaries will be very poor people, incapable of paying for glasses or treatments.
This project needs to receive some pledges to go to the next level. Please check the "Financing" tab to see the list of current pledges. Once the amount pledged is equal to the project budget, the status of the project will be automatically changed to "Fully Pledged". Click here to pledge support for this project.
Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
