The hospital does about 67,000 eyes surgeries every year — 52,000 of them for free. It operates eye-care clinics in 14 of Bihar’s 36 districts and nearly 80 percent of its employees are women.

This organization is inspired by the eternal knowledge of Indian’s ancient Hindu scriptures, and this sacred knowledge forms the basis of its foundation. They are a strong believer of selfless service.



 

By the end of 2017, the foundation plans to boost its capacity to do 110–120,000 eye surgeries a year, of which at least 90,000 would be conducted free. Its primary aim is to eradicate blindness in Bihar by 2022.
