Cataract Surgery Program Benefits 6.9 Million Patients

The Lions Club International Cataract Surgery programme has benefitted 6.9 million people (mostly in the developing and under-developed countries) around the world.

Lion Club's programme has benefitted about 65 million people suffering from 'river blindness' in Africa. The Club has planned to raise 200 million USD in 2007-08 for its future blindness eradication/control programme.

A programme to minimise childhood blindness would be taken up in the second phase.
