India is now home to the world’s largest number of blind people. Of the 45 million people across the globe who are blind, over 15 million are from India.
Meanwhile, shortage of donated eyes is becoming a huge problem. Of the 15 million blind people in India, three million, 26% of whom are children, suffer due to corneal disorders. But only 10,000 corneal transplants are being done every year due to the shortage of donated eyes. While India needs 2.5 lakh donated eyes every year, the country’s 109 eye banks (five in Delhi) manage to collect a maximum of just 25,000 eyes, 30% of which can’t be used.There is a grim need of making people aware about the pathetic conditions of blind people and motivate them to pledge to donate their eyes so as to Give Sight to People who need them.By donating your eyes, you give vision to two blind people and thereby add colors to their life.
So, take the pledge, donate your eyes and become a part of the god’s own work!
G2S acts as a catalyst and a facilitator in your noble attempt to lighten other’s life by providing online/offline pledging facility. These pledge forms are then submitted by G2S to your nearest eye bank who will then be issuing you a Donor Card.
