FREE EYE CAMP
CREASION / Volunteer for Change (VfC) Nepal in a joint collaboration with Rotary Club of Jawalakhel, Manjushree and Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology conducted an eye camp specializing on people suffering from various eye ailments on 9th of Ashwin, 2072 (26th September,2015).
After our previous health camp we realized that there were many people who complained about various ailments related to their eyes and required medical attention. Therefore our primary objective was to alleviate the eye ailments suffered by these people, we conducted eye campaign through various surveys and advertisements and people affected with eye ailments arrived at the camp.
The total number of beneficiaries: 160
The number of people suffering from cataract: 25
The people who were diagnosed with cataract were provided with medical assistance and were given specific instructions to visit Tilganga Hospital for further medical treatment. The transportation for these patients suffering for cataract has been arranged and all the expenses of the transportation will be paid by VFC and RCG. Hence, the eye campaign proved to be fruitful and was a success. We are looking forward to carrying out similar campaigns in the near future.
