COVID has made eye care outreach more challenging over the last year, but that didn’t stop Seva Nepal from coming up with creative solutions! This year, the Youth-Led Outreach Program at Seva Nepal (YLOP) wrote and illustrated a picture book to teach kids the importance of eye health. The next generation leading the future!
The YLOP also led a webinar to educate people about eye health in the age of social media. Since the use of social media platforms has only increased during periods of COVID lockdowns, YLOP educated its audience on the effects of prolonged digital use and its impact on eyes. This webinar was facilitated by Dr. Ankita Sharma of Itahari Eye Hospital (IEH).
