Crowdfunding for Eye Health Camps


Three year oldAadya was diagnosed with leukemia in 2016 and her parents had exhausted all their savings by the time one round of treatment was done. When the cancer relapsed after a few months and a bone marrow transplant was suggested, her parents did not know what to do. The surgery required 25 lakhs of rupees and their family had exhausted all their savings. This is when her father, Suresh came to Impact Guru. Impact Guru gave them the platform to create a fundraiser. A campaign manager from Impact Guru was constantly in touch with Suresh. Within a month, 16 lakhs had been raised and the money released within 48 hours. With the help of Impact Guru, Suresh could afford the bone marrow transplant of his little daughter. Crowdfunding India made this possible.

The above is an example of how crowdfunding India can contribute in saving lives. Medical crowdfunding is an essential component of crowdfunding in places where medical costs are really high, people poor and diseases dangerous. Aadya’s story is one of success because a lot of like-minded people from Suresh’s social circle and others came together for a cause they believed in. They made change happen. If medical crowdfunding can work in one such case, it can work in various other cases. For example, let us say you want to set up an eye-health camp. This would require you to be at the juncture of NGO crowdfunding and medical crowdfunding. Eyes have been compared to many things but it is true that sight is confined to the tender balls of the eyes. Therefore, eyecare is really important for all people. However, not many people have access to that. Even when people have access to eyecare, they may not know that their eye has an underlying condition. Therefore, free and compulsory eye checkups are the need of the hour.

How can we bring this about? We can target schools, colleges, low income workplaces, public roads and set up eye health camps which will provide eyecare for free. In order to do this, you need to get in touch with us. This can be done on a project to project basis. You may have one specific spot in mind where you want to set up an eye camp. Keeping this in mind, you can set up a fundraiser on Impact Guru’s website.

We will then get in touch with you, provide you a support team who will share, connect and talk to people who might want to donate money to your cause, the eye health camp. One of the major advantages of this process is that it is all done online. You do not have to go through any offline hassle over this. Like Aadya, we at Impact Guru have done many such projects. We are proud to announce that we are India’s largest crowdfunding platform. Crowdfunding India is a viable project because of all the people sites like bring together. If you have an outlined idea for doing good in your society and lack only money, you are just a fundraiser away!
