India is home to quarter of the world’s blind population - over 10 million are blind and more than 45 million are visually impaired. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 80% of blindness is either curable or preventable. Not surprisingly the millions of poor who live in villages in extreme poverty with limited or no access to basic health care services – make up the bulk of the population that is affected by ‘curable blindness’. And all it takes – to restore sight to the affected population – is a simple cataract surgery.While the cure is simple, the cure has to reach millions of rural poor all over India.
