Eye Foundation of America's "100,000 Lives" Campaign Reaches Early Milestone with Mobile Diabetic Diagnostics
Date:11/15/2013

James J. Datovech, President of LKC Technologies explains, "LKC is pleased to support Dr. Raju and his use of the RETeval device for diabetic retinopathy screening in India.  This small, portable, easy to use, hand-held, non-invasive device immediately identifies those whose sight is at risk allowing Dr. Raju and his staff to take the interventions necessary to preserve their sight."

"LKC provided an invaluable in-kind donation.  LKC's support and the generosity of others have given us a tremendous boost," said Dr. Raju. "With the realization of our first van, plus our first donation-milestone reached, we can now begin dealing with the massive amount of logistics that are involved with a care and treatment program of this magnitude.  While we are very thankful for this early success, we know that raising the remaining funds will require significant effort," Dr. Raju said.

Mr. Reddy notes that, "As we expand our footprint, it is important for our donors to know that they are indeed helping individuals to avoid a lifetime of blindness.  Certainly, a $25,000 donation toward the 100,000 Lives Campaign helps significantly toward our major endeavor to screen and treat in an effort to prevent blindness among diabetics.  However, just as important is a $20 donation to help children avoid blindness."

As Dr. Raju comments further, our hearts are warmed when we hear of a child who has donated $20 to help children in developing countries that they don't even know.  We estimate that a child that donates $20 to our cause actually helps 200 children escape avoidable blindness for a year as vitamin A tablets are given twice a year for only about a nickel a piece."

At this time, the foundation is running two tremendously important campaigns simultaneously, both the 100,000 Lives Campaign for Diabetics and the Children's Avoidable Blindness Initiative.  To donate to the cause please
