Appeal for Donation
R.N.C. FREE EYE HOSPITAL
R.N.C. Free Eye Hospital was founded, in the year 1920 by a noble Parsi Zoroastrian Late Shri Dadabhai Ratanji Chavsarewala in pious memory of his father Late Shri Ratanji Natthubhai Chavsarewala whose name has become our popular abbreviation R.N.C. Since it was the mandate of the donor to give FREE Eye Care Treatment to all needy patients, we do not and cannot charge them for giving treatment here. Today, after 94 years, wish of the Founder to give free service is still carried on.
At present our Hospital is having 6 full time Ophthalmologists and 3 visiting Consultants who, with the help of 34 staff members are engaged in providing Quality Eye Care to patients. At R.N.C. we examine about 80,000 to 90,000 Outdoor Patients and perform about 8,000 to 9,000 Cataract and other surgeries per year and now we are planning to increase the number of surgeries to 12.000 per year. In addition to that we also hold Eye Camps tor benefit of the people living in tribal areas. We also visit schools for eye checkup of students. We run an Eye Bank. Sometime back we have started Diabetic Retinopathy Centre for laser treatment of Retinal damage due to Diabetes. We also provide free lunch, dinner and morning milk with biscuits to patients and give to and fro transport fare to poor patients.
Though we give free treatment our commitment to quality of treatment remains uncompromising. Recent inflation in cost of treatment has made it very difficult and a challenging task to give free Quality Eye Care Treatment. The Management has been facing insurmountable problems of continually increasing financial burden of operating expenses. Since we give Totally Free treatments to our patients, donations from kind hearted donors like you and Government Grants are our main source of Income.
In spite of the above mentioned constraints we want to continue the mission, to provide Free Eye Care Treatment lo poor and needy patients, started 94 years ago by the founder of this Trust. To do so, we need your help and support We appeal to you, our kind hearted donors and well-wishers. to donate generously to this Trust. Your donation will provide us strength and enthusiasm to treat more and more patients and to bring cheers to their lives. Blessings of such patients will definitely add joy and happiness to you and your family’s life.
