SN USA MESU Donors Meet with Dr. Prem Reddy

Sankara Nethralaya USA Adopt-A-Village MESU Sponsors Meet ‘n Greet with Dr. Prem Reddy. Raised the grand total USD $350K.

For the last four decades, Sankara Nethralaya (SN) has restored the vision of millions of patients. Lot of poor patients got medical treatment free of cost. One of the unique services of SN is Mobile Eye Surgical Unit (MESU). SN is the only institute that got approval from Government of India to do eye surgeries remotely in the field.

MESU is a hospital on wheels and consists of two buses – one serves as patient preparatory room and the other one as operation theater. These buses along with about 25 members of medical staff go to remote villages, screen about 2,000 to 3,000 patients, perform cataract surgeries on 150 to 250 patients over a two-week period and return to base hospital after post-operative care. Patients with health complications will be referred to a base hospital.

Sankara Nethralaya USA (SN USA) is a fund-raising arm of SN and is spearheading the noble cause of eradicating the preventable blindness from India. So far, there are 2 MESU units – one is based in Chennai and the other one is based in Jharkhand.

SN USA raised funds to establish one more MESU based in Hyderabad to increase the footprint of this service in India. TATA foundation is sponsoring one more MESU that will be based in Jharkhand.  Each MESU will go up to 500 Kilometers from the base hospital.

For his invaluable contributions, SN conferred Sankara Ratna, the highest award in that institute.
