Top Indian investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala invests in eye care hospital
Rakesh Jhunjhunwala, who is India's top investment guru, will build a free eye-care hospital, in partnership with Sankara Eye Foundation.
The 225 bed hospital will be set up in Panvel, and will operate 15,000 patients free of cost.
Jhunjhunwala says that he decided to make such an investment as one-third of the world’s blind population lives in India. He said that there are many cases of undiscovered eye-diseases and it affects young children as well as elderly.
He said he had decided to do this as a tribute to his father. Jhunjhunwala hopes to build more hospitals in time.
