IKSHA FOUNDATION – Providing vision to children
Iksha foundation is a public charitable trust to focus on Retinoblastoma (eye Cancer) – to create awareness, to provide aid for its treatment and to support research to improve care of children with Retinoblastoma.
We at Iksha believe that no child should ever lose eyesight or face death to this type of childhood cancer that has one of the best cure rates. No family should have to go through the unspeakable pain of losing a child. We are currently supporting children who have been diagnosed with Retinoblastoma and are being treated at several hospitals in Bangalore.
Retinoblastoma is a life threatening eye Cancer that affects children. The Cancer grows from the retina, which is a sensory layer located inside the eye. As the Cancer progresses, it may be observed by the parents as a white mass from within the eye. Eventually, the eye becomes painful, red and swollen. Once the Cancer spreads outside the eye it becomes a threat to life, especially when it spreads to the brain and other parts of the body.
Iksha Foundation is registered under 80G, all donations will be issued an 80G certificate to be used to income-tax.
