As part of Goa Sudharop's continuing Covid Assistance in Goa which began in April 2020, we are pleased to organize free eye camps for below poverty line people who cannot afford basic travel to go to doctors and pay for medical care. The first eye camp was held on December 6th in Orlim. Other eye camps will follow in Varca, Cormona, Quepem, Paroda and Canacona. These eye camps are organized and led by Irene Almeida and the Goa Sudharop volunteer team in Goa. Fifty-two residents of Orlim and the surrounding villages were successfully helped on December 6th. Goa Sudharop would like to convey its immense gratitude to all the volunteers, to SUN PHARMA who donated eye drops and supported the eye camp, to our Goa-based volunteer medical services team, especially to Dr. Sarvesh Sawant who donated his services and for his past volunteer work for Goa Sudharop during this pandemic, and to KOHINOOR OPTICALS who donated the spectacles/glasses free to the patients.
Goa Sudharop appreciates all the donated time, effort, services, and in-kind contributions from everyone and considers it a privilege to support needy Goans. So many have supported and contributed with much compassion and great purpose to make these eye camps possible. A special thank you to our volunteer Irene Almeida for heading this initiative and her team for bringing together all the resources needed and for developing, coordinating and organizing the event with great purpose and discipline.
