Inspite of all the contributions made to social causes, there is a huge gap between the demand of money from the needy and the amount donated by philanthropists. This probably, is the reason why the Government has given tax benefits on donations. Thus, the amount donated towards charity is allowed as deduction under section 80G of the Income Tax Act, 1961.

FEW MYTHS THAT PROBABLY ARE HOLDING YOU TOWARDS BEING A PART OF THIS INITIATIVE

MYTH 1. THE PROBLEM IS SO LARGE; MY GIVING CAN MAKE NO REAL DIFFERENCE

In fact, you could make more of a difference than you might think. You may not be able to end eye diseases on your own, but all great movements are made up of individual actions. If we all donated a percentage of our income to the most effective cause, we sure can lighten up lives.

MYTH 2. AID IS USELESS DUE TO CORRUPTION IN THE INSTITUTION WHO RECEIVES IT

No-one denies that corruption in developing countries can sometimes lead to aid money or resources going missing. But the answer is not giving less, but giving smarter. We tie no loose ends as your giving will be directly directed to the concerned with no interventions. We just act as the way for you to reach the needy.

MYTH 3. THE MONEY WE HAVE SPENT HAS HAD LITTLE OR NO EFFECT

Global avoidable eye blindness has been a massive problem, and aid certainly hasn’t made it disappear yet. However the awareness for various eye diseases is not enough. Ray of Hope initiative is established to create awareness and help fight the eye diseases by early diagnosis and treatment.

Despite this, a lot has been achieved in the developing world. There have been some notable achievements in the prevention and management of avoidable blindness. There has been increase in public awareness, professional and political commitment to prevention of blindness. There has been an improvement in the control of infectious causes of blindness and an increase in both the quantity and quality of cataract surgery.

Despite spending relatively little, we have made great strides forward in terms of eye care. Just think what we could achieve if we gave more, and come together for a common purpose.
