Aravind thanks donors for joining hands to treat the underpriviliged
By Chitra Prasad - Project Leader
With the help of Global giving and the genorisity of the donors we received $12,000 this year. these funds have been directed to the Ring of Hope Fund which is used mainly to treat patients suffering from life threatening eye cancers and tumors. These donations are either used for subsidized or free treatment of the under privileged people who are unable to pay. Every year Aravind treats approximately 100 new patients &150 review patients who otherwise would have been unable to access crucial medical care. These cancer patients need at least 6 chemotherapy cycles after the surgery. Hence the donations received from global giving helped us treat about 25 such patients including new and review cases.
