Avoidable blindness is still widespread in the rural regions of North-East India. To address this situation, LIGHT FOR THE WORLD is working with two regional partners to set up regional ophthalmological care. We are even able to reach people in remote areas thanks to our mobile aid units.
With a new strategy for inclusive education, we plan to ensure that all children with disabilities can attend school with their peers. We helped a total of 52,511 people in the region last year, and 6,351 children with disabilities received rehabilitative assistance.
