We are grateful to our donors and well wishers that we could expand our services at the project:

1. Exansion of Dinning Facities: The N H Eye Hospital has Bareja is now expanded its infrastruture facilities. With the support of 2 donors from USA, thte dinning facilities at the project have been expanded. Now all the patients, their escorts and volunteers will be provided free meals at the hospital. Thanks to generous donations for establishing the dinning hall and kitchen facilities that these services could be expanded.

2. Services for Ratino-pathy: Generally retina treatment is expnasive and poor persons are not able to afford to get such advanced treatment. The project with the support of a donor from USA has expanded retina intervention services. Now the project is in a position to provide services of retinopathy free of cost or at very affordable cost.

3. Expansion of Operation Theatre: As present, operation theatre is running to the capacity, the project wishes to establish a second well established operation theatre. A donor from USA has very gracefully committed support for this purpose. Within next 3 months, the second operation theatre would be ready.
