Project Report | Jun 5, 2020
To See All As One

By Donna Campbell | Executive Director

Dear Friend, 

I sincerely hope that you and your family are well in this unprecedented time of global anxiety, sadness, and no doubt anger at the injustices faced by so many. 

Still, dark times can offer opportunities to do good things -- things that perhaps we thought were impossible before.  When Covid-19 emerged in India and forced us to close our hospitals except for emergency operations, all our employees rose to the occasion. Every one of us should be proud of the doctors, nurses, administration, maintenance, drivers, security, catering and housekeeping, who performed their duties with dedication and sincerity, true to the longstanding values and tradition of Aravind. The catering staff and our sanitary staff need a special mention of appreciation, since their work has increased manifold in recent times.

We continue to see our eye cancer patients, of course, and have arranged for them and their families to stay at Aravind and avoid travelling back and forth on public transportation and risk exposure to the virus, especially since they are in an extremely high risk category.  Your generosity makes this all possible!  

I want to leave you with the words of our founder, Dr. Venkataswamy, and I hope that they give you some comfort.  “Attachment to your village, your hospital, your state or country – that must go.  You must live in your soul and face the universal consciousness.  To see all as one.”

At this crucial time, let us put aside our differences and pray to help every person in the world.  Let us see all as one. 

Stay safe and be well.  And, know that we are extremely grateful for your support, more now than ever.  Please email me or call me (917 412 4742) if you have ideas on how we can do a better job, especially at this time, or if you would like to learn more about our work.  

With gratitude, Donna
