The Arpana Research and Charities Trust is involved in many development projects in the state of Haryana. It has also established several health care services, including an eye care program located in the service wing of local ashram, or “places of devotion” for Hindus, Sikhs, Christians and Muslims.
The Trust also created an outreach program. In 1993, they were awarded the Saskawa Health Prize by the World Health Organization, recognizing their outstanding quality of their work. Operation Eyesight’s donors contributed to the construction of the facility and also funded equipment, medicine and instruments.
