Tej Kohli & Ruit Foundation

Renowned Nepali ophthalmologist Sanduk Ruit and British entrepreneur Tej Kohli have joined forces to treat cataract patients at home and abroad via the Tej Kohli & Ruit Foundation. An MoU to the effect was signed between the two parties on 20 April at Tilganga Hospital.

“The agreement to combines our technical expertise and Kohli’s philanthropic approach to maximise the reach of cataract treatment,” says Ruit. Nearly 2000 patients were treated by the Foundation last month in Nepal and aims to reach 150,000 cataract patients internationally in the next two years, hoping to restore the gift of sight to one million patients by 2026.
