ElectricAid’s Funding of the Month for November 2014: Saving Eyes and developing lives in Uttar Pradesh, India.

 

ElectricAid has funded work for Sightsavers in the last 2 years in Mozambique (fitting-out an eye clinic) and Ghana (Trachoma elimination programme). This time, we are funding a comprehensive eye care programme in 5 rural districts of Uttar Pradesh, India, benefiting thousands of very poor patients. The damage caused by eye diseases like Trachoma, Glaucoma and simple cataracts can be very effectively combated, with relatively small amounts of money – this programme is costed at €5,647. Real people are saved from a lifetime of dependency, degradation and extreme poverty. Can you think of a better way of serving them?
