Advancing a Humanitarian Purpose and Scientific Query
Since the start of the year, Project Prakash has screened dozens children from across India. Our team has conducted many eye care camps across the northern swaths of India where poverty is most acute. Through our screenings, we have met with families with multiple members suffering from bilateral cataracts. We have traveled into the interiors of north-central India to meet and counsel with families, such as one who have multiple children suffering from bilateral cataracts and were faced with the difficult choice between food and healthcare.
Furthering Our Understanding of Vision
Project Prakash earned 1st runner up prize for "Best Poster" Presentation at Vision 2020 13th Annual Conference in Raipur in 2017 as well.
Project Prakash has been active in vision research since its inception and continues to publish in the field.
Expanding Our Team
These advancements would not be possible without the support of a talented on-the-ground team in India.
Over the last year, Project Prakash made key hires to further our mission. Over the next six months, our goal is to keep journeying into villages, slums and rural regions to identify, screen and operate on more children. We remain committed to excellence in research to ultimately share those findings with the world.
Thank you again for your support. Onward to the second half of the year. We're glad you're with us.
