The children ( Ishan ) cause of lost of vision,
can be treated only with a patch.
Imagine not having access to it.
Strabic amblyopia is a disease (EYE) in which vision acuity is lost.
The child because both eyes are not well lined-up, and brain inhibits the information from the deviated one.
In America this is a problem with an easy solution,
with a continuous check-up and a treatment based in occlusion of the healthy eye to force the wrong one to get the right position.
However, that's not the situation in India. Here,
until a 7.2% of the children suffers from strabismus, but good decisions are not taken, so people achieve an age when it is impossible to treat it.
That's the reason why from IIMC (Institute for Indian Mother and Child)
we are promoting a screening programme for strabismus in children, so that we can detect the problem earlier and deal with it when it's still treatable.
Unfortunately, they do not have all the resources here to cover the population with patches.
Because of this, we have started this campaign until 12th of january 2019, when this group of volunteers leave,
another group comes, and this group can continue with the project until it is implemented here.
If we achieve the amount of 3000$ we are going to be capable of buying more than 5000 patches & Medicine.
Thanks to this little help, a great project can start and we can somehow change the health of many children here, in Asam.
Help us changing their reality!
Please Help This Child.
