NEW DELHI: Eyedo.in is partnering with Magic Bus to organize an eye camp in one of the urban slum clusters of Delhi. The eye camp will reach out to 300 children and their parents who are a part of the Magic Bus programme in JJ Colony, Bhalaswa.
A year ago, a similar camp organized by Eyedo.in and Magic Bus reached out to 330 people with 90 people receiving free and much-needed spectacles in Madanpur Khaddar.
Speaking about the camp, Jyoti Sharma, Regional Head-North at Magic Bus, said, “We are happy to partner with Eyedo.in for this noble initiative that will benefit underprivileged kids. Collaborations with a well-established/philanthropic organisation like Eye.do enables us to add value to the work we do in some of Delhi’s poorest areas. We hope this camp reaches more children than it did the last time.”
Naveen Ahuja, CEO of Eyedo.in quoted “Working with Magic Bus for the children and their parents gives us immense joy and satisfaction. Bringing clear vision to the needy is a blessing for us. During our last camps, we were surprised and sad to see that even in the urban slums, people with high prescription also are living without eyeglasses. We will put in our best efforts to ensure that quality eyewear and eyecare reaches to all.
Magic Bus is one of the largest poverty alleviation programmes in India, working with more than 400,000 children and 9000 volunteer mentors in 22 States and 58 districts of the country. We work with India’s poorest children and young people, taking them from a childhood full of challenges to a life with meaningful livelihoods. We equip young people with the skills and knowledge they need to grow up and move out of poverty.
