Free Eye Camp in Vengadu Village

Free Eye Camp in Vengadu Village

In a joint initiative between Nambikkai Illam Trust and the KK Surgical and Paediatric Centre in Tambaram, free eye tests were given to the boys and girls from the homes. A clinic was set up in Vengadu Village and around 100 local villagers also benefited from attending the free eye camp. This was all provided at no cost to Faith Welfare Trust.

33 people in all needed glasses and these were distributed in the village by 2 of our workers.
