Eye Camp in Ambaulim (Qupem)

eye project

As part of Goa Sudharop’s continuing Covid Assistance in Goa which began in April 2020, we are pleased to organize free eye camps for below poverty line people who cannot afford basic travel to go to doctors and pay for medical care. The first eye camp was held on December 6th in Orlim. Other eye camps will follow in Varca, Cormona, Quepem, Paroda and Canacona. These eye camps are organized and led by Irene Almeida and the Goa Sudharop volunteer team in Goa. Fifty-two residents of Orlim and the surrounding villages were successfully helped on December 6th. Goa Sudharop would like to convey its  immense gratitude to all the volunteers, to SUN PHARMA who donated eye drops and supported the eye camp, to our Goa-based volunteer medical services team, especially to Dr. Sarvesh Sawant who donated his services and for his past volunteer work for Goa Sudharop during this pandemic, and to KOHINOOR OPTICALS who donated the spectacles/glasses free to the patients.

At the eye camp 60+ people were given life-altering medical assistance of which 27 were given prescription glasses while others received medications and two operations were subsequently performed. Imagine going through life not being able to properly see the world around you – this is the reality for many Goans and we are proud to be able to make such a positive impact on people’s lives by simply providing them with basic medical attention.
