Sankara Eye Foundation:
The Sankara Eye Foundation is an organization committed to promoting nation-building projects, through the form of quality eye-care, free-of-cost. Operating and managing 9 hospitals (and counting) across India, they have performed over a million vision-restoring surgeries to date, and they are among the largest providers of eye care throughout the country. The foundation operates under the Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Medical Trust. Hence, proceeds from the event will go directly to the Sankara Eye USA chapter.
Vision: To work towards freedom from preventable and curable blindness.
Mission: To provide unmatched eye care through a strong service oriented team.
The Need: 1/4th of the world’s population is in India and 2 million new cases of cataract are added every year. The incident which is rapidly on the rise, is due to non-availability & non-affordability of quality eye care in Rural India. In this scenario, Sankara’s comprehensive community eye care initiative gains greater significance. Sankara’s goal is to eliminate needless blindness.
Vision 20/20 by 2020: To create replicable and sustainable models of Sankara Eye Hospital and establish one in every State of India with the ultimate objective of achieving perfect vision for all by the year 2020.
