Free Eye glasses to the aged people to correct vision defects

Association for Sustainable Community Development (ASSCOD)

Association for Sustainable Community Development (ASSCOD’s) vision is to facilitate economic development in rural India living by providing access to good education and health care. ASSCOD targets groups among lower caste families who are living below the poverty line, these are mainly in the rural areas of Cheyyar and Vandavasi Blocks in Tamilnadu.

 

Tribal people known as irulas have been living in isolated places of interior villages of Kancheepuram and Thiruvannamalai Districts have no access to basic amenities such as safe drinking water, shelter, clothing and health care facilities. ASSCOD is making sincere efforts to address those issues and improve the quality of lives of tribal people.


As a part of its health care projects, ASSCOD is conducting eye camps, last year 842 people were screened and treated for various eye related diseases and out of them, 191 patients were given eye glasses at free of cost. Also, 38 cataract patients were taken to eye hospitals such as Ramachandra Hospital, Chennai, Aravindar Eye Hospital, Pondicherry and enabled all the cataract patients to undergo surgeries at free of cost. All the patients those who got surgical and spectacles supports have been restored with their normal eye sight.
