We have supported this amazing organisation over several decades. The extraordinary work that the Devdaya Trust carry out is concentrated in Wankaner in Gujarat India. This includes the building, running and maintenance of school projects and the building of the The NR Doshi Eye Hospital and the Waymade School of Ophthalmic Study. Treatment at the hospital is provided for adult patients on weekdays, and children on Saturdays and is free to those who are unable to pay.
Additionally, there are regular eye camps scheduled at certain times of the year, the last one being in January 2023. The number of children treated has increased over the years. In 2020 1,600 children were treated in outpatient clinics and an additional 253 had major eye surgery. The Shanta Foundation has sponsored the camps in conjunction with the Lion’s Club of Enfield; it is supported by ophthalmic surgeons and other health care professionals from around the world including India, the US and the UK. The service provided by international professionals is voluntary. Along with the medical care, the Trust also provide post-operative care, food and medicine for its patients.
