2010 has been a truly action-packed year for Aravind and well into its fourth decade of blindness prevention work the organization shows no signs of slowing down. The organization seems to leap from one dazzling accomplishment to the next, yet never failing to prioritize the needs of the patients who need them the most.
Aravind through its hospitals, community centers, vision enters and outreach camps screened 2.54 million patients in the year ending March 2010 and performed 302,180 surgical and laser procedures of which 53% were free or subsidized.
With the support of wellwishers and donors through Global Giving, Aravind continues to provide free speciality care to the underserverd patients which include children suffering from eye cancers, Glaucoma patients and Diabetic retinopathy patients. So far this this year 10 ring of hope patients suffering from retinoblastoma were treated comletely free of charge. Attached are a few photos of these children. The link below provides a summary of the activites undertaken by Friends of aravind to support Aravind Eye Care Systems mission of eradicating needless blindness.
