          7 Summit Foundation is pleased to announce the successful organization of a free eye camp in Tapting, Solukhumbu in 2023. This four-day event, held in collaboration with
Matrika Eye Centre, Wangchu Memorial Hospital, and Solu dhudkunda Municipality-10, aimed to provide essential eye care services to the local community. During the eye camp,
more than 300 individuals were provided with comprehensive eye check-ups, ensuring that any potential eye conditions were detected and addressed in a timely manner. We are
proud to have been able to reach out to such a large number of people and contribute to their overall eye health. Additionally, as part of our commitment to improving the lives of
individuals suffering from cataracts, we successfully conducted 46 cataract operations during the camp. These surgeries have undoubtedly made a significant impact on the lives
of those affected, restoring their vision and enhancing their quality of life. We express our heartfelt gratitude to all the medical professionals, volunteers, and organizations involved
in making this eye camp a resounding success. Without their unwavering support and dedication, this event would not have been possible.
At 7Summit Foundation, we remain committed to our mission of serving the underprivileged and ensuring access to essential healthcare. Through initiatives like these, we strive to
make a positive difference in the lives of individuals communities. We look forward to organizing more such camps in the future and continuing to provide vital eye care services to
those in need. Together, we can create a brighter and healthier future for all.
