Persons with disabilities standing up for their rights

Society for all

In Skardu we are helping people with disabilities to stand up for their rights, advising them and helping to set up organizations to represent themselves. Starting in 2016, we shall be doing the same thing in Ghanche in the Gilgit-Baltistan region.

In the field of ophthalmology, last year the clinics we support provided care for a total of 70,074 patients and performed 2,242 cataract surgeries.
