Navya Sri Eye Clinic
As early as 2001, the Shirdi Sai Global Trust (SSGT) has been conducting free medical eye camps to the poor villagers in India. In November of that year, it had operated on over 1,000 patients inflicted with many ocular disorders. All patients were provided food, accommodations, transportation and glasses free of cost.
In 2007, with the support of SSGT, the Navya Sri Eye Clinic was created. Named after the daughter of the SSGT founding chairman, Sri Kaleshwar, the first ever eye clinic in this area was established. The goal is to provide state of the art surgery for the elimination and prevention of various eye diseases such as cataracts.
Thousands of surgeries have been performed, and the clinic provides much needed ocular health care. Essential medical equipment, ambulance vehicles, operating facilities and support staff, have been provided to meet this overwhelming need of people who would otherwise not be able to afford proper care. Since its creation, the clinic has doubled its physical location size, and the number of eye surgeries have expanded significantly.
Sri Kaleshwar personally donated vehicles, ambulances and mini buses to transport patients to and from the hospital. After Sri Kaleshwar’s passing in 2012, the Navya Shree Free Eye Hospital had to close due to lack of funds and support, but with the help of many people the hospital was reopened in January 2014 in a beautiful new building with modern equipment.
We would like to invite you to become a sponsor and to contribute through your heartfelt donation to keep the Navya Shree Free Eye Hospital alive and running and to continue improving the wonderful service, which is offered for free for people in need. All Donations however small or big would be gratefully received.
