Three separate facilities have been constructed in Agra in order to provide preventive and curative eye care for the city and surrounding area: a base hospital (constructed in the industrial section of Agra), an out-patient facility, and a new facility in the Baluganj section. Together, they provide both out-patient and in-patient work. The hospital has an outreach program consisting of eye camps and school screening programs, which provide much-needed care for many of the villages around Agra.
We began working with the hospital in 1979, shortly after the base hospital opened. Our donors funded equipment and mobile eye units, school screenings and family health nutrition education, and helped subsidize surgeries performed at the eye camps.
