ARUNODAYA CHARITABLE TRUST (ACT)

A SUGGESTED MODEL FOR OPHTHALMIC PRACTIONERS

Reaching the Un-reached….

introduction
Introduction

Arunodaya Charitable Trust (ACT), was the dream of a young couple - both ophthalmologists - who wanted to donate their time and professional skill, to help reverse the tide of curable blindness in their city - New Delhi.

slide6
Its primary objective is to restore the sight of the poor. With restoration of their sight, the poor can return to their vocations and become productive and contribute to the society, once again. This way families are supported and communities begin to change for the better.
slide7
To accomplish these goals, the following are needed:

1) An established, charitable organization in and/or benefactor willing to invest its resources in the proposed project.

2) A willingness on your part, to devote the extraordinary amount of time and energy necessary, to establish and run the foundation.

3) The organizational and surgical skills that are needed, to care for the huge numbers of economically disadvantaged, that you want to serve.

slide8
In November 1990, a chance encounter with a visiting physician Dr. E.W. Jackson, from Utah (USA), who is the founder of the Deseret International Foundation, Inc. lead to the inception of Arunodaya Charitable Trust (ACT).

ACT is a registered, non-profit, public, non denominational, medical, welfare trust that works in the field of curable blindness.

slide9
We started with a small budget (Rs. 1000/-) Dr. Arun Sethi’s mother had an OB-GYN clinic in an economically disadvantaged section of Old Delhi. This we transformed into an eye clinic with surgical capabilities. A lot of the equipment was old, but functional.
slide10
We then established a second facility in space donated by a small charitable hospital, in New Friends Colony, New Delhi, where we were also able to operate.

A third out patient facility was established at the

well known Mata Ka Mandir, New Friends Colony, New Delhi.

slide11
We are able to perform cataract surgery with phaco at very nominal cost.

Knives, tubing(s) are sterilized disposables. Lenses are single piece PMMA, viscoelastic manufactured in India. Visco-elastic normally used is methylcellulose 3%.

slide12
Ultimately we were able to go big time. With the aid of the Deseret International Foundation, Inc. (USA), we constructed a state-of–the-art tertiary eye care facility in the fast growing new Gurgaon.

In ACT’s eye care project, 60% of the cases are economically disadvantaged. Their care is partially subsidized, by the other 40 %, who pay the going rate for private care.

objectives of act
OBJECTIVES OF ACT
  • Provide comprehensive eye care services to the economically weaker sections of our community in the rural and out-reach areas.
  • We focus on doing simple things, that produce dramatic life style changes such as ...... removal of cataracts by phacoemulsification / SICS, and intra ocular lens implantation.
slide14
ACT has, to date, reached out to 7,24,386 needy patients. Its services are available from three different clinics in Delhi, throughout the year. It also conducts eye care camps in nearby slums and villages, where apart from examination and treatment, spectacles and medicines are also dispensed. Over 28,034sight restoring surgeries have been successfully undertaken at our base hospitals.

School Screening Programme

A novel program of vision screening for school children has been initiated for early detection of refractive errors and other eye problems. Children with defective vision are identified in no time through a specially designed ‘E’ type vision card which is provided to the teachers in advance.

ACT’s team then does the necessary and detailed eye check up, at the school premises, and provides free/subsidized spectacles for the children.

introduction need of the project
Introduction & Need of the Project
  • The Mewat district is the land of Meo Community
  • There are six blocks - 503 villages, 1.2 million population.
  • 90% people are engaged in farming and 50% people are living below poverty line.
  • Over all literacy rate is around 30% and girl literacy is below 10%.
  • Mewat lacks basic health care facilities, and does not have even a single ophthalmologist doing surgical work in the whole of Mewat.
  • Poor eyesight and eye diseases have resulted from poor nutrition, & hygiene, lack of awareness and difficult access to health /eye care services, has resulted in many villagers losing their sight

profession as a business
Profession as a Business
  • If ophthalmology is your profession then prevention of blindness in the community is your business.
  • While you deal with those able and willing to pay your private practice,help those who may

remain blind or become blind because they are not able to pay,this is professionalism and will bring you great rewards.

philosophy
