Project Report - Save 50000 Pakistani children

Current progress of the project: The Khyber Eye Foundation Peshawar has played a major and vital role in helping out the flood affected people in the region of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, particularly Peshawar and its surrounding areas. The foundation has been successful in establishing 22 eye camps in the following areas: • Peshawar • Nowshehra • Mardan • Charsadda.

The camps have provided medical aid concerning eye diseases to 809 children, 1365 women and 1344 elderly patients. The following treatments have been met out to the affected patients: • Cataract operations • Provision of free spectacles to 2000 number of patients • Provision of free medicines worth US $ 12,200 To eradicate various eye diseases.

Our mobile camps have been able to protect children from blindness. The foundation is currently looking after 260 numbers of outdoor patients every day and also carrying out 15 to 30 cataract operation per day.

Future plans:

Concerning our future plans the foundation intends to further establish eye camps in the far flung areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. We are devising a plan to take concrete measures to eradicate blindness from this area, especially the children of KPK. We wish to widen the scope of daily treated patients and provide them with post operative care. It is further planned to establish 30 camps in the future, which may not be possible due to the lack of availability of funds. However, a limited number of camps may be established subject to the funds available.


Total funding received = US$ 100 Remaining goal to be funded US$ 49,400 Total funding goal US$ 49,400 Conclusion: Khyber Eye Foundation Peshawar has so far been successful in their endeavors due to the generous contribution of its donors. Therefore, we heartily thank them for believing in our cause. We wish to know what is expected of our foundation and how our efforts can further be made effective in order to benefit a larger number of School going children.
