Cataract accounts for approx 55% of all blindness cases and is easily preventable if Cataract surgery is performed in time. We target 8710+ surgeries every year. Over 1000 surgeries performed in last one year. No charges are taken from beneficiaries.
This project was initiated in 2005; with the assistance of donors belonging to different sectors.
Why Motiya Bund Project: You may be knowing that a cataract surgery, on an average, costs Rs 15,000/ in Delhi and Rs 10,000/ in Gurgaon. It is not affordable to a financially weak patient, especially the old aged poor due to dependency on others for their livelihood and financial condition of the family.
- To provide easy access to cataract surgery to everyone.
- To provide counseling to cataract patients.
Trust has operated upon 8710+ cataract patients (approx) so far (free of any charges).
