PALAMPUR ROTARY EYE FOUNDATION KANGRA DISTRICT, HIMACHUL PRADESH STATE

Located in a tribal area where some 60 percent of the population depends on farming, the Palampur Rotary Eye Foundation is a referral centre for the northern part of Himachal Pradesh, including the districts of Chamba, Kangra, Hamkirpur, Bilaspur and Mandi. The hospital provides quality diagnosis and treatment for issues such as glaucoma and retina problems. The hilly topography of the area makes communication and transport difficult, which necessitated an eye care facility. Operation Eyesight’s donors began supporting Palampur Rotary Eye Foundation in 1986.
