American University hosts event to raise funds for the blind in India
The Rutgers University in the United States recently hosted a blind date event to raise funds for free eye surgeries for people in India.
The Blind Date Auction is held every year and the collected funds are then handed over to the Sankara Eye Foundation.
Sankara Eye Foundation arranges free eye surgery for people in India who are suffering from curable blindness.
It costs around $30 to fund surgery for a person in India that includes pre-op, operation and post-op care.
Many students of the Rutgers University are Indians and they feel good about making some contribution towards the welfare of communities in India.
