— i-mint, India’s first and largest multiple partner rewards program, has today joined hands with Bhaktivedanta Hospital to continue to offer community welfare programs for the poor and needy residents of the society in rural areas.
To supplement the joint initiative, i-mint is looking to urge all its members to “SPEND FOR A CAUSE”, where for every redemption; i-mint will donate 10 points between 15th December till 15th January, to fund the free cataract operations for the poorer sections, who are not in a position to afford the treatment. Also the i-mint member has a choice to fund one cataract operation by utilizing 3500 points for which they will be entitled for 80G tax benefits.
The Bhaktivedanta Hospital has been conducting free cataract surgical camp at Barsana, UP, and Rural Thane since 1991. Initially the average number of operations per year at each camp amounted to 200 surgeries. With the increase in the need for such services the surgeries have now increased to an average amount of 3000 operations.
The Bhaktivedanta Hospital has 180 volunteers consisting of 10 Ophthalmic surgeons, 20 MBBS doctors, 30 nurses and others who have come forward to offer pro-bono services during this camp
i-mint has pledged their support to the Bhaktivedanta hospital in order to support the work that the hospital serves the needy in our society
Commenting on this initiative Mr. Vijay Bobba, founding CEO and Managing Director said “The medical need in the rural areas of India have been continuously rising. More and more people are falling sick due to the lack of medical attention and we believe that it is extremely important that we do our part in contributing back in the upliftment of the needy sections of the society.”
He further went on to say “The Bhaktivedanta hospital, conducted by Chaitanya Welfare Charitable Trust, has been doing some outstanding work in this space and it’s just perfect for us to ally with them. We’re promoting this initiative very aggressively and I’m certain that many more will support this cause unconditionally”

About Bhaktivedanta Hospital:
The Bhaktivedanta Hospital lies in the vision of a few dedicated doctors.

The collective dream was to provide quality healthcare to the medically deprived people at a very affordable cost. The hospital is run by the Sri Chaitanya Welfare Trust under the chairmanship of Mr. Rajeev Srivastava, and a cohesive group of Trustees who provide the required strategy and guidance for growth. The motto of ‘Serving in Devotion’ is followed in spirit by all the 285 staff and the 100 consulting specialists of the hospital.
