The Ruparelia Foundation held a medical eye camp providing free eye checks, treatments, glasses, and cataract surgeries, benefiting thousands of people in Kamuli District over the weekend.
The foundation has conducted medical eye camps in Kampala before, but the Kamuli edition is very special because it happened in the town where the co-founder of the foundation, Jyotsna Ruparelia, was born and raised.
“It warms my heart to give back to the community where I grew up,” Jyotsna Ruparelia said at the event that was graced by area woman MP and First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for East African Community Affairs, Rebecca Kadaga.
Several other partners joined the Ruparelia Foundation for the noble cause. They included Dr. Agarwal’s Eye Hospital, Abacus Parental Drug Limited, SSDM Temple, Rwenzori Bottling Company Ltd, Euroflex Ltd (Eurofoam), Pearl Dairy Farms Ltd (Lato milk), and Harris International (Riham).
The Rotary Club of Jinja and The Rotary Club of Nsangi also made generous donations towards the cause.
