Eye Surgeries for underprivileged

Eye Surgeries for underprivileged

Eye Research Centre, a recognised NGO dedicated to providing affordable eye surgeries to underprivileged populations, raised funds through Actor Siddharth’s Chitththa movie charity premiere. It was an outstanding event that combines the enchantment of cinema with the spirit of compassion at Seasons PVR Sathyam.

Dr. Athiya Agarwal, Director of Dr Agarwals Group of Eye Hospitals said “ The funds raised from this occasion are going to enable us to perform over 40,000 life-altering corneal surgeries, bringing light back to the lives of 1.3 million Indians who have become blind from corneal disease."

"Thanks for making a direct contribution to this worthwhile effort by joining the 'Chithha' charity premiere, establishing an accelerator for turning events” said Dr. Ashvin Agarwal, Executive Director & Chief Clinical Officer of Dr Agarwals Eye Hospital.

Siddharth, the movie's lead actor, was an outspoken promoter of the Indian Eye Research Centre's goal saying  "I am proud to be an active participant of an endeavour that seeks to bring together worldwide fans of film and community members for an especially worthy cause".
