"True India lives in the villages. So many gods of gold in the temples! If you will truly worship them, melt them and pour out the gold in service of the starving, shivering gods of the earth."
- Sadhu Vaswani
The Sight for the Sightless Initiative is an attempt in bringing this vision to life.
Thousands in India's villages are going blind everyday. They are old, poor and abandoned. They live in agonizing darkness.
Afflicted with blindness they lose their means of livelihood, they become a burden on their families. The blindness is unnecessary, it is needless. The Sight for the Sightless Programme works to give such people new sight and a new life.
Their renewed eyesight provides relief from the agonizing darkness, makes them independent, helps to regain their dignity, changes their lives…… Their happiness….their relief …….
