    Self-supporting Programs and Facilities for the Long-term

    In 2005, HCP helped establish The Lhasa Institute of Eye Care to serve the blind in Tibet.

    The Himalayan Cataract Project is committed to building, provisioning, mentoring and staffing a diverse range of of eye care facilities so that they are equipped to serve the blind and others who need eye care indefinitely. From community eye centers in rural areas staffed by ophthalmic assistants, to full specialty eye hospitals, HCP provides financial support and administrative assistance depending on the needs of the area. HCP also assists newly established groups work toward financial independence.
