It is with immense joy we announce that on the occasion of World Sight Day 2020, the new ‘Akhand Jyoti Eye Hospital – Savitri Waney Charitable Eye Centre’ was inaugurated and opened to patients. Specifically chosen for its location, the new 60-bed hospital has been designed to serve a particularly underprivileged region of Bihar, offering curative and preventive eye care services – both affordable and accessible – to communities most in need.
Over 65,000 members of the public voted and help get us shortlisted for the Charity Film Awards Finals and we are thrilled to announce we won a Silver Award for our film; Ending Blindness in Bihar.
Simon Burton, Co-Founder of the Charity Film Awards said;
“Congratulations Savitri Trust for winning Silver at this year’s Charity Film Awards. Their film, described by one of our judges as ‘incredible content’, was chosen not only by our expert panel of judges but also by the public and to have won silver is an incredible achievement!”
The Waney family remain passionate about delivering our vision of a cataract free Bihar and together with the Savitri team and our partners in India, we are working on plans to turn this vision into a reality.
