Construction of Hospital in India
Our partners, Akhand Jyoti Eye Hospital, are doing about 60,000 cataract surgeries a year in the state of Bihar, India. We are building a new hospital in Ballia, India that will help increase that number from 5,000-8,000. Patients near our new hospital will no longer have to travel hours to one of Akhand Jyoti’s other hospitals, which are the only ones in the area that will do charity eye surgeries.
The progress of the hospital has begun. Here are some photos of the construction so far!
