Rohan Kapur, currently working in Singapore, has been associated with the Sagar Trust since 2013 and always makes it a point to help out whenever he is in India. He was one of our earliest interns and has shown long term dedication to the cause of helping people with eye problems. During internships over his summer vacations every year, he helped out at a number of eye camps - registering of patient at the reception desk, taking detailed history of patients, escorting them to doctor chambers and making them comfortable with the process. He would also liase between patients and doctor to ensure that the patient had understood the medication properly or had their subsequent queries answered. He also independently collaborated and coordinated with other NGO's in administrative matters, spread awareness about the Trusts' work, created a small 'spectacle bank' and raised donations towards oculoplastic surgeries.
The Goyal family has been a strong and silent supporter of the work of Sagar Trust for many years. Here their two lovely young daughters, Rhea and Tanya can be seen participating with great enthusiasm in one of the several camps sponsored by them for the community.
. "I had the privilege of shadowing Dr. Mehta at an eye-camp she organized in 2012. It was an enlightening experience and allowed me to observe the extent to which medicine can improve the quality of human life. Additionally, since this camp specifically targeted the underprivileged, it was deeply touching to be part of an initiative that addressed the inequities that exist in society. I will always value the meaningful lessons I was able to draw from this internship. " - Asha , who is now with Fed Reserve in St Louis.
