Support for the Elderly
We are enabling cataract operations for the elderly who don’t have financial support in Pune, Nagpur, Hyderabad, Bengaluru and Goa. Supported 1413 cataract surgeries. Medical outreach is provided via Mobile Medical Units. 4033 patients are benefitted through this services
We support eye examination, vision screening, diabetic retinopathy screening services and awareness among the community regarding ophthalmic problems in the elderly. Eye-screening camps are organized regularly, with travel arrangements made by the hospitals. Screening kits are provided to the hospitals. Pre and post-surgery medication is also provided.
Our Mobile Medical Unit (“Bringing Health Care to Remote Corners”) takes a doctor, social worker, and driver to the interior parts of Goa, covering 17 villages. It makes weekly visits, providing medical and healthcare services. This unit acts as a platform for the elderly to get information related to government services available to them, as well as to share any medical concerns they have. In case of emergency, this van helps patients reach the nearest hospital.
Eye-related surgeries prevent vision loss and reduce dependency on others. Successful surgeries lead to improved quality of life, as people can be more physically active and independent. In some cases, support is also extended to family members.
Our Mobile Medicare Unit brings basic health facilities to the doorsteps of those who need it most. Medicines are provided free of cost to patients along with minor operations. With increased awareness, patients are utilizing government health programs for their treatments. Patients are referred to specialized hospitals for their treatment, which reduces screening time.
