Navyashree 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.
Unfortunately the past 3 years have brought a standstill to the Navyashree Eye Clinic. In the meantime, a building has been constructed at the Trust premises. We are glad to let you know that the free eye clinic will soon resume its operations at the Ashram premises. The final formalities should be completed soon. We sincerely hope that with the blessings of Swami Sri Kaleshwar we will be able to open the clinic around his Samadhi day.
The following purchases are forthcoming in the next few weeks:
- A new operating bed and more modern technical instruments
This results in an estimated amount of $ 2.400 / € 2.300.
