A note from Seva's Executive Director about COVID-19
We are weathering a storm together. The COVID-19 pandemic is reshaping the world and our lives every single day. We want you to know that in these difficult and uncertain times, our resolve to end avoidable blindness remains steadfast.
We are working with our partners worldwide to ensure that they have the support they need for their own safety as well as their staff and patients as they provide urgently needed emergency eye care. We are focused on resuming the full range of eye services: surgeries, glasses, medications and other care to meet local needs when it is safe to do so.
Today and everyday, Seva's work does not stop during this challenging time. Our teams world-wide are working tirelessly and remotely so that when this difficult time has passed, we are ready. Ready to transform lives by restoring sight.
It is our responsibility as individuals to flatten the curve and slow the spread of the virus. We encourage you to take the extra precautions necessary to safeguard your own health as well as the well being of those around you.
Compassion in Action We do not observe suffering, we address it.
Selfless Service Service is its own reward.
Respect We believe in the fundamental dignity and value of every person.
Equity We serve the underserved to ensure all people have access to quality care.
Fun We never take ourselves too seriously. When you stop laughing, you’ve stopped living.
