RAJSHAHI LIONS EYE HOSPITAL RAJSHAHI, BANGLADESH

Founded in 1989 as an eye hospital and outreach program to serve Rajshahi’s poor and rural population, by 1993 the program had grown to the point where a temporary eye hospital was no longer able to meet the community’s needs. Although Operation Eyesight had been funding the hospital indirectly since 1989, through the Royal Commonwealth Society for the Blind, in 1993 we began funding the hospital directly, subsidizing operations at surgical eye camps and bringing care to those in need.
