On behalf of the Board of Eye Care Foundation, the executive office in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, and our field office in Kathmandu, I take pleasure in congratulating Himalaya Eye Hospital on her 25th birthday on this memorable day, March 1st, 2018. We are proud to look back on 25 years in which you have delivered quality eye care services to the eye patients in your service area, proud of your vision and ambition to grow and improve those services over the years, and of your professionalism in executing your activities. Having successfully operated for more than two decades, now it is time for the hospital to involve more in advocacy and policy influencing activities. Eye Care Foundation is very grateful for friendship we have established over the past 25 years. Over the years we have become very connected to the people here and we look forward to continue working closely with Himalaya Eye Hospital into the future, in order to help tackle the challenges and support the further development of Himalaya Eye Hospital.
To conclude, I want to express the firm hope and believe from all of us that Himalaya Eye Hospital will continue to play its important role in the future of eye care health in this beautiful country, Nepal.
