With the grace of Waheguru, and the support of the Sangat and viewers, Sangat Trust launched the Sangat Aid Eye Camp project in February 2012.
During the next few weeks, Sangat Trust made use of the Sangat Television platform to raise £39,000 to provide essential Eye operations and cataract treatments to the needy people of Punjab. We have been able to deliver these to the highest standard through partnering with Sant Baba Nirmal Das Ji.
Sangat Aid has the vision to provide Aid to the needy and truly put into practise the core teaching of Sikhi – ‘Selflessly serving others without any form of discrimination’.
In the next few months these funds we used to deliver 4 eye camps. The details of these camps were:
|Dates||Village||Eye Inspections||No of operations|

- Provided many complex and specialist eye operations as per needs of needy individuals.
- Tended to the needs of patients between 4-85 years of age
