This phase was completed in June. Phase II, which includes collaborating with local municipalities and partners to build 400 Temporary shelters is still underway as is the planning for longer-term recovery (Phase III).

Following the devastating earthquake, Nepal is in a state of emergency. Thousands are homeless and in need of medical care, including eye related trauma.


The Himalayan Cataract Project's co-founder, Dr. Sanduk Ruit and partners at the Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology in Kathmandu, are working tirelessly to provide long-term recovery for Nepal's citizens.

Long-Term Impact

The recovery of Nepal and surrounding areas will take many years. Thousands are left homeless and injured. The staff at the Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology will continue to provide treatment to those left with injuries following the earthquake.
