Eyes for India is a humanitarian venture to help the Ruby Nelson Memorial Hospital to treat cataracts plaguing the people of India and surgically restore their vision. You can help by donating to this venture and helping millions to regain their lost sight.
If you know anything about India, you might be surprised to find out that it is home to the world’s largest number of blind people. Of the 37 million people across the globe who are blind, over 15 million are from India. 75% of these are cases of avoidable blindness. However, as a country with an acute shortage of optometrists and eye donations, India is unable to free itself of this ailment.
More than 1/7th of the world’s populace lives in India. And, out of the 1.21 billion people that call India home, those with eyesight illnesses keep increasing year by year, until now. Science has made inordinate progress in surgery and disease. Thankfully, eyesight can be restored by means of a very simple surgery.
Now, you can help in this grand process. Read and watch on to learn how you can make a difference by taking part in It Is Written’s project to open the blind eyes of India. Eyes for India is a life-changing humanitarian project that is gifting the blind of India with the one thing they lack, the blessing of vision.
With more than 60% of the entire populace of India living in villages, access to hi-tech healthcare is a mere dream. A sizeable chunk of the rural folk of the country suffer from operable cataracts. Poor economic conditions and pitiful local healthcare centres force the cataracts to be left un-operated. Most people lose sight soon after.
However, there is hope. And you can be a vital part of it. Ruby Nelson Memorial Hospital—a Christian facility in North India—is changing the lives of these blind people for the better. The hospital, situated in Jalandhar in the state of Punjab has designed a humanitarian program that is restoring sight to thousands in these destitute rural communities. They are heralding the change, but not without you.
Once more Jesus put His hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. – Mark 8:25
