Welcome to Netra Daan, the greatest gift of all...
We are a not-for-profit organization, funded by the Costa Rica based Tej Kohli foundation. Our primary objective is to increase eye donations through public awareness, and highlighting the importance of donation.
If statistics are to be believed, there are more that 3.5 million corneally blind people in India, and more than 25,000 get affected annually. Given the current rate of eye donations, it will take India 112 years to completely eradicate corneal blindness. As the patient line-up and the wait to get treatment gets longer day by day, it's time to stand up to the challenge and bring the much-needed change. Read more about statics of blindness in India
Through Netradaan, we want to ensure quality ophthalmic care for every Indian and bridge the widening gap between donated eyes and potenial recepients waiting for corneal trasplants! Together with the Tej Kohli Foundation and Niramaya Eye Bank, we have undertaken a series of campaigns to spread awareness on God's own work.
