Welcome to VELEMEGNA, an eye hospital in the heart of India which reaches out to those in need without regard to religion, caste, gender or social status. Since its inception in 1968, VELEMEGNA’s goal has been to heal those in physical distress, teach the fundamentals of caring for others as we care for ourselves and preach the Good News of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
These are principles set before us by VELEMEGNA’s founders, Dr. Christy Salins and his wife, Dr. Sushila Salins. The mission of VELEMEGNA is to demonstrate the Love of Christ through excellence in health care, education, research and developmental activities.
At Velemegna we believe that illness is a part of our common humanity and comes to us all in different forms by “divine permission” from God. We do not ask “why” but rather “how” can we help for it is our duty to help one another. However, it is more than our duty, it is our honor, our privilege and our joy to follow Christ’s example.
