ABOUT EVENT

L V Prasad Eye Institute is back with the third edition of WHITATHON 2021 - this year, and it is virtual!

Aim of Whitathon

  • Spread awareness about childhood eye cancer - Retinoblastoma
  • Raise funds for the treatment of children with Retinoblastoma

What is Retinoblastoma

  • Retinoblastoma (eye cancer) most commonly affects children below 3 years of age (90%)
  • 20 to 25% of cases of eye cancer worldwide in children are from India, and 50% of cases worldwide lose their lives due to late detection and inadequate treatment

Why we need to create awareness and raise funds

  • Every day 4 children are diagnosed with eye cancer in India and worldwide
  • 50% of children with retinoblastoma die because of late detection
  • Retinoblastoma is curable if the tumour is detected and treated early
  • Retinoblastoma treatment plan is expensive and long in duration
  • Early diagnosis can help save the eye through chemotherapy and focal treatment
  • Thus saving the life, eye, and vision of the child

Dates: 09th-15th May 2021

It will be a week-long event spreading awareness during the entire duration of the World Retinoblastoma Awareness Week from 09th to 15th May 2021. Registered participants can participate anytime during the week.

ABOUT IIMAAA HCCT

The IIMAAA Hyderabad Chapter Charitable Trust (IIMAAAHCCT) was initiated with a vision to provide holistic, quality education and implement innovative educational initiatives so that every child achieves their full potential. The trust comprises members from eminent public sector organizations and corporate leaders. Following are few activities that the trust enjoyed doing in the past and continue encouraging now too:

IIMA Alumni Association and Udbhav School

IIMAAAHCCT took over a school facing imminent closure in Rasoolpura, designated as a notified slum of Hyderabad in April 2013. The school selectively admits students from families having a household income of less than Rs. 10,000/- per month with an objective of providing them low-cost high-quality education. Udbhav School, Rasoolpura provides education to 587 students from Grades I to X. IIMAAAHCCT works with a vision to transform the lives of at least 10,000 underprivileged children and their families by 2025. This vision can be achieved if more Udbhav Schools start operating providing quality education in other slums in Hyderabad and other cities in India.

IIMAAAHCCT is proud to announce the take over of a second school, Udbhav RBL School, Fatehnagar having 366 students in July 2019. Udbhav Schools are catering to the educational needs of 950 underprivileged students and the numbers are expected to rise in the following academic years. We are delighted to share the exceptional academic performance of our students in SSC-2019 conducted by Telangana State Government. The members of IIMAAAHC will continue to strive to impact more students while improving the academic performance of Udbhav students.
