Himalayan Cataract Project: Remote Eye Camps

Dec 21, 2010

2010 in Review

Dear Friends,

 2010 has been a busy year for our project. With your help, a total of 24 Eye Camps were conducted in the Nepal, Tibet, China, Bhutan, and Northern India. A total of 26,062 people were screened and out of them 5,176 received sight-restoring surgeries.

In addition, ophthalmologists and ophthalmic nurses from different countries were able to participate in these Remote Eye Camps to expand their skills in high volume cataract surgery.

I want to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude for your generous contributions.  It is only with your continued support that we can continue the fight against curable and preventable blindness.

 Happy Holidays and Best Wishes for the year 2011.

 P.S. I hope you enjoy reading our 2009 Annual Report and our Best of 2010 highlights.
