New Dhalkebar Eye Hospital
Curing Blindness & Restoring Sight
In November of 2018 we embarked on the most ambitious project in the 55 year history of Dooley Intermed International. Working with our Nepal based partners, Mission Himalaya & Reiyukai Eiko Masunaga Eye Hospital we are helping fund the construction of a new 3-story Eye Hospital in Nepal near the border of India.
We estimate the new Eye Hospital will serve more than one hundred thousand patients per year from Nepal and nearby bordering districts of India.
Our goal with this new Eye Hospital is to improve the quality of life of people who are suffering from blindness or visual impairment, especially socio-economically marginalized, ethnically, geographically disadvantaged, and culturally underdeveloped groups. By alleviating blindness we also help reduce poverty.
The required land has been donated by the local Municipality, an access roadway has been completed and the boundary wall has been built. The Nepal Army recently agreed to assist by providing 30 construction workers at no cost. Full funding for the first floor has been secured, and construction is now underway.
Our “Urgent Need” is for the funds needed to complete the 2nd and 3rd floors.
Plaques will be placed prominently inside the building to honor those individuals and organizations that share our vision of bringing high-quality eye care to a population in great need. Following is a list of sponsorship and naming opportunities:
- Operation Theater Room: $50,000
- General Ward Room: $20,000
- Nurse Duty Station & Staircase: $6,000
- Cabins: $14,000
- Toilets (Ladies & Gents): $12,000
- Corridor: $8,000
