Challenge

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

Solution

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.
