Mytri association with Sarva shikshan Abhayan of education department have coordinated with Sri Vivekananda Sevashrama in conducting screening. six children have been referred to ophthalmologist for further examination and suitable corrective action, 230 spectacles are being issued to correct vision defects. This is only the beginning of the project Sight to sightless for children in Bellary district. We hope to expand the activities further depending on the cooperation of the education & health departments. They have their own children eye screening programmes and we have to coordinate our activities with them and see that duplication of work does not happen.
Sri Vivekananda Sevashrama's programme of school children eye screening programme in Mysore district is progressing well.
Surgery work at UshaKiran eye hospital, Mysore is progressing well. We have completed 120 surgeries till now.
There is plenty of work to do in sight to the sightless and other projects. WE are facing financial problems to expand our activities in a large scale.
We depend on God and He guides us in our activities and supply our needs according to His plans..
