The earthquake that hit Nepal on April 25, 2015, left thousands of people homeless, helpless and broken. HCP has vowed to be part of their healing process. Thanks to your generosity, the help of our international partners and the hard-working team on the ground at the Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology in Nepal, we are doing just that.
The Himalayan Cataract Project will be helping fund direct relief and free treatment for trauma victims with a special account, NEPAL RELIEF. 100% of funds raised will go directly to the relief effort coordinated by Dr. Ruit in Nepal.
