GUJARAT BLIND RELIEF AND HEALTH ASSOCIATION GUJARAT, KHEDA DISTRICT

Inspired by the late Mahatma Gandhi, Dr. R.R. Doshi set about creating an eye care program to serve the poor and needy in the state of Gujarat. The result was the Gujarat Blind Relief and Health Association, a preventative eye care program with a special emphasis on the needs of children. In 1978, our donors began supporting the children’s eye care program and a vitamin A supplementation campaign. With donor support, we also provided funds for equipment, instruments and medicines, and outreach camps, and we subsidized operations.
