Cataracts are a leading cause of bilateral blindness in India, responsible for 50-80% of cases. Limited awareness, accessibility, and high costs make treatment challenging for individuals from urban and rural slums. To address this issue, DLF Foundation and ICARE Eye Hospital have joined hands to provide free cataract surgery, enabling vision restoration. Through this initiative, 700 successful cataract surgeries have been performed for rural beneficiaries in Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, and Delhi. Through this initiative DLF Foundation aims to support underserved communities by providing accessible and affordable surgical interventions that improve quality of life.

An ambulance service plays a critical role in saving lives by providing immediate medical assistance to the critically ill. DLF Foundation has deployed several ambulances across various locations in NCR. Patients from urban slums can now avail free ambulance services to reach the nearest hospital in case of an emergency.
This project had the maximum impact in 2021 as the public struggled to reach hospitals and medical facilities during the second wave of Covid. Six ambulances were deployed for emergency evacuation of patients to nearby hospitals. The ambulances not only ensured emergency evacuation of patients to nearby hospitals but also distributed oxygen cylinders and oxygen concentrators to the Covid-affected families across NCR. The ambulances ensure that critically ill patients from underprivileged backgrounds get immediate medical care, through linkages with hospitals.Till date, this Project has benefited over 3,790+ beneficiaries.
