I've been a longtime supporter and volunteer at Sankara. This organization has made great stride in terms of service to the needy and expanding it's satisfied donor base in U.S. With a clear mission to eradicate curable blindness in India, Sankara has been building state of the art Eye Hospitals in India, organizing weekly out-reach camps in rural areas and giving the gift of vision to thousands of needlessly blind ppor folks. A must-support organization
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Fullfill it's noble mission to erdicate curable blindness in India by the year 2020.
