Each year, Karma Garchen Trust, one of His Holiness Karmapa’s organizations, holds a free Eye Camp, in which everyone from the surrounding area who wishes to receive treatment of eye related medical issues is provided an opportunity for top-quality treatment at no expense. At the Eye Camp, medicine is prescribed and dispensed, operations are conducted and relief for eye ailments are provided to all. The Eye Camp is sponsored by His Holiness through the Trust.
This year, the Office of His Holiness’s administration has dedicated the Eye Camp to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and to His Holiness Karmapa on the occassion of his 25th birthday, which is a special age according the the Tibetan calendar system.
The Eye Camp is an annual institution and and dearly loved by those in need.
