Himalayan Cataract Project (HCP)

Himalayan Cataract Project (HCP)
Posted in:

It costs a maximum of about $195 to cure one person’s blindness through the Himalayan Cataract Project (by my calculations), and that figure accounts for all the organization’s overhead and other costs. In 2018, HCP also supported 534 training opportunities for local eye-care professionals so that the project’s work is sustainable, and it reached more than 1.7 million patients with screening and basic treatment. So, for less than $200, you’re curing one person’s blindness, investing in basic eye care and training physicians who will cure thousands of people of blindness.
