Rotary Clubs from District 9685 (Sydney, Australia) and District 3262 (Odisha, India) have joined hands to support the BKP Rotary Eye Hospital and Health Centre with hospital equipment and machinery through The Rotary Foundation Global Grant.  The Town of Puri, with a population of over a million, will benefit from this project.  The location of the center in the village of Jhinkiria, about 11 KMs from Puri and densely populated with no medical facilities nearby, will help prevent avoidable blindness. 
The Rotary eye care center will also create awareness among villagers about prevalent eye diseases. This will increase patient acceptance regarding the importance of routine eye examination, which will help proper identification and treatment of various eye conditions. We hope to help eye care professionals and health educators target specific educational initiatives and interventions. 
We need your support to make this a reality.  Vision 202 has come forward to support this project along with Nautanki Theatre to present The Jungle Book to raise much needed funds for this project.  Click here to book your ticket and show your support.
Please note that no International Club from our district is identified, and any club can put their hand up to take part as the club contribution will come from this fundraiser if club members attend.
Yours in Rotary
