Nagpur Million Project

This was so named, since about 45% of the population in Nagpur lives in the slums. Accessibility of eye health is extremely limited and matters of affordability  are of immense importance. With about 1.2 million in the slums, it offered us an opportunity to what we could. Starting about 5 years ago with 7 clinics a month in the camps, we went to 24 clinics a month in 2017. The response is so tremendous that it touched us and our lives. The entire team at the SEI felt immensely motivated to do what we could. We distributed free glasses and brought back patients for cataract surgery.
