Gyalyum Kesang Choeden Wangchuck National Eye Centre
Himalayan Cataract Project
Partnering with the Himalayan Cataract Project, Wen Giving has funded the construction of the first eye hospital in Bhutan.
Named after Her Majesty Queen Grandmother, the Gyalyum Kesang Choeden Wangchuck National Eye Centre in Thimphu will prevent, control and cure major causes of avoidable blindness and make eye care services available to all citizens of Bhutan.
The centre will house 16 beds in four Aseptic wards, a specialised out-patient department, three operating theatres and other amenities necessary to provide people-centric eye services. The hospital will also run a targeted mobile outreach programme to ensure eye services reach remote communities in Bhutan.
