Ivanovo Region has been selected for the pilot programme.
The Ladoga Foundation’s partners in this project are: CAF Russia; and the Svetodar Clinic in Ivanovo, which is licensed to carry out hi-tech cataract operations.
Recipients of aid should be citizens of the Russian Federation resident in Ivanovo Region (excluding the regional capital of Ivanovo), who are at least 60 years old when their application is submitted. Formalities are reduced to a minimum for the patients’ convenience. Given the age of those being treated and their limited ability to move about, specialists from the Svetodar Clinic regularly travel to the remote areas of Ivanovo Region, in order to make diagnoses and complete paperwork before organising the transportation of patients to and from the place of treatment at a later date.
