The Savitri Waney Charitable Foundation is delighted to partner with the LV Prasad Eye Institute. This secondary eye hospital provides high quality eye and patient care for people in all socioeconomic situations.
The Arjun Waney Eye Centre was inaugurated in the presence of the Honourable Chief Minister Shri Naveen Patnaik on 13 December 2015, the birthday of Arjun’s mother Savitri in whose name the Trust was founded. To mark the occasion, the Savitri team and several members of the Trustee board travelled to Odisha.
As eye care services are sporadically distributed across Odisha, the Centre is specifically located to cater to a rural population that has limited access to eye care. The centre aims to reach 25,000 people annually through its outpatient department and to undertake 2,500 – 3,000 surgeries through its various community outreach services.
