An eye camp in Kakinada
Around 300 patients were screened at a mega eye check-up camp conducted by RC Kakinada Golden Jubilee, RID 3020, in Uppada Kottapally village, mostly inhabited by fishermen families. Cataract surgeries were performed on 62 patients at the Sri Kiran Eye Institute, Kakinada. The eye camp and surgeries were part of a global grant project worth $40,000. “We provided two eye testing machines to the eye institute,” said G K Srinivas, past president of the club which roped in RC Souhegan Valley (Nashua), RID 7870, US, as its global partner for the medical project.
