For the second time this year, Dr. Govinda Paudel and a team from the Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology in Nepal traveled to Jagadguru Kripalu Charity Hospital, Uttar Pradesh (UP), a remote location in India, to manage a cataract workshop in conjunction with local ophthalmologists. A total of 501 cataract surgeries were provided.

HCP has supported work in the UP since 2007, and each year the number of cataract surgeries provided at the outreach workshops has increased. HCP has committed to adding two additional high-volume cataract workshops in 2012 in India due to the great need.
