PROGRAMME FOE EYE CAMP REFERRAL
Salt pan workers major problem is of their eyes. Because of the hot summer, Most of the salt pan workers have been affected by eye diseases. We had a plan to have free eye camp / eye surgery referral in our project. Right now we have no enough funds, we offered the training to have the referral with eye hospitals. We provided the beneficiaries to “referral chits” to contact a relevant eye hospital name “Aravind Eye Hospital” to have the free eye camp including surgery .
