“From last 3 months, I was not able to see clearly. I was not able to identify people and objects from a distance. Thanks to the free eye check-up camp conducted by SBI Foundation and Bhaktivedanta Hospital – it changed my life!


When I look out of the window, I see a new world!”

“I am very happy with the level of service I have received at Bhaktivedanta Hospital. I am extremely content with the nurses and doctors for their service attitude.


I am now able to see clearly and upon returning to my village, I will once again start working on the fields. I will grow rice and help my family.


My heartfelt gratitude to both SBI Foundation & Bhaktivedanta Hospital.”
