Sadguru Netra Chikitsalaya

Sadguru Netra Chikitsalaya (SNC) is a pair of rural hospitals that perform high volume eye surgeries in Chitrakoot and Anandpur, India. SNC has been partners with Seva since 2001. SNC was founded in the 1950s by Param Pujya Gurudev Shri Ranchoddasji Mahara with the mission to provide “food for the hungry, clothes for destitute and sight for the blind.” To attain this mission, he formulated the Charitable Sadguru Seva Sangh Trust, under which the hospital functions today.

SNC endeavors to provide quality eye care services to all sections of society, emphasizing the economically underserved. For low-income patients, treatment is free. For those with middle income, treatment is subsidized and individuals from higher income brackets pay the full service fees. This scalable payment system allows SNC to be economically sustainable.

The Center of Community Ophthalmology within SNC began in 2008. Its purpose is to increase community awareness and to restore sight throughout the region. The center at SNC offers training and consultation to other institutions in this vast underserved region. As a mentor in the Global Sight Initiative network, SNC works with Seva to spread their model of universal access to service and economic sustainability in areas overlooked throughout India through the Global Sight Initiative. Seva also supports free and subsidized direct services through the TOMS One for One program and Focusing Philanthropy's World Sight Day campaigns.
