Free Eye Camp and Cataract Operation Clinic
Once a year a free eye clinic held at WFN. It is financed and staffed by GLS Future Foundation for Development and Vision for the Future – Germany. Women, children and men of all ages come to be diagnosed and provided with medication and free eyeglasses. The camp is targeting the many people in Nepal with untreated eye problems due to poverty and lack of access. The team, consisting of Dr. Karl Brasse and Sister Anja, Wehrmeyer, and health team of Netra Jyoti Sangh is providing eye exams and operations. For people suffering from loss of vision and cataracts, this has made an enormous difference in their lives. Now they can live happily and independently with their eyesight restored.
