Mobile Eye Clinic Van





History Logs

Project Description

Region: Asia

Country: India

Location: Patna

Total Budget: $54,500

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

Millions of people lose their eyesight due to negligence or ignorance which can be prevented with simple eye tests and treatment. To help the rural population which cannot reach an ophthalmologist, we want to launch an ophthalmic van equipped with all modern equipment. This air-conditioned unit will go to interior regions to treat underprivileged people. From this van an ophthalmologist can do detailed eye check-up for eye diseases relating to retina, cornea, vision problems, etc.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






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%.
