Annual Report

It’s truly heartening to reflect on the accomplishments and dedication of Team Sankara during the demanding period of 2022-2023. The commitment to eliminating curable blindness through the Nethra Yagna over four decades is an inspiring testament to the unwavering spirit of team Sankara.

The collaborative efforts of our team of Doctors, Administrators, Staff, Donors, and Supporters have undoubtedly been instrumental in shaping the success of Sankara. Their active engagement and dedication has played a crucial role in achieving the noble mission of restoring sight.
