When Hari became blind due to cataracts in 2021, he immediately became unemployed - his food stall lay abandoned, and he could no longer work in the fields. Mina, his wife, had no option but to exhaust the money they had saved up for their daughter's future. The family was on the verge of extreme poverty when Hari's blindness was referred to the Tej Kohli and Ruit Foundation.
Watch Hari's sight restoration journey to understand why the Tej Kohli & Ruit Foundation continues on its mission to screen one million, and cure between 300,000 - 500,000 of needless blindness by 2030 - to prevent families like Hari's from falling into the chain of extreme poverty induced by needless blindness.
Through such interventions, the Tej Kohli & Ruit Foundation aims to lift families and communities out of extreme poverty, and make a direct contribution to the number one United Nations Sustainable Development Goal of ending extreme poverty everywhere.
