Combined Eye and Medical Camp
Since its start as a small eye unit with only 12 beds in 1983, the Sagarmatha Choudhary Eye Hospital (SCEH), Lahan, has performed more than 3.7 million examinations and 843,000 surgeries. SCEH has seven satellite clinics, providing services to the economically poor and under-privileged population in eastern Nepal and northern India.
Recently a partnership has been undertaken by SCEH and PKMMH in order to provide more comprehensive services to the population in the Karjanha area. The partnership began with PKMMH providing free medical and dental screenings and lab services to SCEH staff in Lahan. SCEH will return this by providing free eye screenings to PKMMH staff.
Following up on the screenings at SCEH, the primary goal of the partnership is to provide hearing, eye, medical and dental screenings and blood grouping types to children in the Karjanha area. The point is to create greater health awareness with the hope that children will educate their peers and their families. The first camp was held at Janasewa Secondary School, Karjanha with a student population of more than 1000.
Today we started our partnership with Lahan Eye Hospital. We provided screenings to the LEH staff and this went very well. Tomorrow LEH will be coming to Karjanha government school along with our dentist and doctors to do screenings for children. Very exciting stuff.
Really happy about this. Took place at karjanha government school.
