New Operation Theater and Low Vision Center

Dear Donors, Well Wishers

We are so touched and thankful to you for your humble support. We can provide best quality health services, and mainly able to save a sight of the needy person only and only because of your support, encouragement and your faith in our work. This keeps motivating us to reach more and more people who are out of health services. I am glad to share with you that in the previous quarter, the project has made very significant achievements, and development. I am happy to share with you which is as below.

  1. Ultra Modern Laminar Modular Theatre : The ultra modular laminar operation theatre was inaugurated by Shri Prafulbhai Patel, and Shri Asishbhai Patel on 8th September 2017 at BPA Bareja hospital complex. The new eye surgical unit will help BPA to reach out to more persons whose eye sight is failing.
  2. Vision Center in Bavla: BPA Bareja hospital has been supported by Gruh Finance Limited under their Corporate Social Responsibility to start a vision center at Bavla on the way to Ahmedabad to Rajkot. This centre was inaugurated on 6th September 2017 at NAB Savinay Sammalit Vidyalay Bavla by Ms. Mina Bhatt and Mr. Kaushal Mulani of Gruh Finance Limited. The center will check patients with needing surgery to the BPA – Eye Hospital. All the services like surgery, travel, food, medicines will be provided without any charges.
  3. WAGH BAKARI CSR –MEGA EYE CAMP:  Wagh Bakari is very famous Tea producing company in India. The Wagh Bakari Tea family sponsored a mega eye camp under their CSR initiative. The mega camp was organized on 24th September 2017, 927 patients attended the camps, and received treatment services without any charges. During the diagnosis, and treatment; it was found that 93 patients required cataract surgeries, 19 patients other treatments, and surgeries related to eye. In this mega camp, 584 were provided spectacles and 803 patients received eye drops, and medicines. Out of 93 patients, 50 patients were taken to Eye Hospital for Cataract surgery. These 50 patients received best eye care services without any charges.
  4. Retina Surgical Unit: The new retina surgical unit was inaugurated on 13th June 2017. The Mazda Limited supported Eye Hospital to construct Ratina Surgical unit, and procure equipments for operations, and treatment of retina. This was great milestone for eye hospital of BPA. It would add new activity under Seeing is Believing Project. There are very few hospitals which provide treatment related to Ratina, and those provides treatments are very expensive and unaffordable to the poor patients. An average retinal detachment surgery costs around Rs 25,000 and in many cases surgery may be required a second time unlike cataract which is a onetime surgery. Hence, this retina department of the hospital would provide affordable, best quality services to the poor patients without any charges. 
  5. Surgeries Conducted in the previous quarter: The project has conducted 34 camps in Sabarkantha District, and in slum areas of Ahmedabad. The patients who had been diagonosed having cataract were referred to BPA hospital for the surgeries and treatment. In the previous quarter, 1238 cataract surgeries were done without any charges. The patients were given free medicines, spectacles and eye drops.
