Another hurdle that we face as we begin to address blindness, apart from the medical care facilities, is the cost of service. Aside from proximity to eye-facilities, the sheer inability to afford treatment is a major factor affecting rural India.
Shri Ganapati Netralaya is a unit of the Mahyco Research Foundation Trust, and therefore Dekhon is a project of MRFT as much as it is a project of Shri Ganapati Netralaya itself. When donating online, you'll be donating to an MRFT bank account.
