now renamed as Global Sight Solutions will come to talk to us about this Rotary project. 

In 1997 Guildford Rotarian S N Das MBE, an eye surgeon and consultant ophthalmic surgeon, started the project  in and around Kolkata (Calcutta) with a personal ambition to restore the sight of 100,000 people!
Aided by a generous grant system from the worldwide Rotary Movement, the £15 cost of a cataract and other similar operations can be funded by a donation of  JUST £5 FROM YOU.
    Training for eye surgeons
    Microscopes and laser equipment etc.
    Eye buses
    Hospital transport 
    Mobile eye screening camps
    Facilities for additional treatments
    Strives to ensure self sufficiency for all eye units
    These eye hospitals are currently carrying out an impressive 40,000 operations per annum 
MUCH MORE CAN BE DONE WITH YOUR SUPPORT in the Indian sub continent, in Africa and in other economically emerging countries.
A donation of just £5 can enable the blind to see again!
