The 4th Eye Camp
Druk White Lotus Clinic, Kathmandu, Nepal
16 & 17 February 2013
The Eye Camp
For the forth time, Live to Love International will team up with Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology in Nepal, co-founded by Dr. Sanduk Ruit, to organize an eye camp in Feb 2013, in Kathmandu, Nepal. Dr Ruit is a renowned eye surgeon whose innovative small-incision cataract surgery utilizing inexpensive intraocular lenses has enabled hundreds of thousands of poor cataract patients of Nepal and other countries to restore eyesight. Druk White Lotus Clinic in Kathmandu will also actively participate in this forthcoming eye camp by providing facilities as well as specifically trained people.
Through the previous three Eye Camps, we have successfully restored the eyesight of about 600 people!
The Need For Eye Camp
The blindness situation is dire in developing countries such as Nepal. 50% of the avoidable blindness is caused by cataract. The per capita income of an average Nepalese is around US$1,100 (2008 estimate) and 42% of the population lives below poverty line. Most people with impaired vision cannot afford a cataract surgery, which on average costs about $3,279 per eye (source: www.AllAboutVision.com).
Donate, and be someone's light!
Each eye surgery costs only US$150 - including food, housing, and care for the recovery period.
With over 200 patients in critical need, our goal is to raise US$30,000 for all of them. Every single eye surgery will save a life from darkness.
