Ashok Mahindru had set a target of 1000 eye donations at his father's dream initiative Y.P. Mahindru Niramaya Eye Bank for 2012 and it has been a great joy to see it fulfilled with 1000th eye transplant by the year end. Many of these corneas have been transplanted by AIIMS, Delhi and PGIMS, Rohtak (Haryana) through an ongoing collaboration.

Founder of the eye bank honorable Late Mr. Y.P Mahindru, a visionary philanthropist believed that one gets deep inner satisfaction and happiness when one gets physically involved in philanthropy. Late Mr. Mahindru had worked for health care for over 6 decades and had regularly organized free eye surgery/care camps for the under privileged. Mr. Ashok Mahindru has been taking forward his father's vision by expanding the footprint through Run for Vision Foundation.

In 2004, Late Mr. Mahindru along with his son Ashok Mahindru guided a group of motivated professionals with a record experience in health and eye care to set up North India's first and largest private Eye bank with a mission of providing 'Quality Health Care to the Rural and Urban Poor". Y.P. Mahindru Niramaya Eye Bank was registered in January 2004 at Gurgaon (Haryana), as a charitable institution under Society's Act.

BSNL has provided a free helpline (1919) for the Eye Bank which is also a 24X7 helpline to respond to eye donation requests immediately. It is the only govt. approved eye bank in South Haryana which is registered with Eye Bank Association of India. It follows standard world class procedures and is equipped with latest technology.

Active steps under the guidance and leadership of Mr. Ashok Mahindru are being taken to keep this campaign alive by making it a part of the Indian culture in years to come.
