LRBT – A Beacon of Hope In December , the late Graham Layton and Zaka Rahmatulla’ who were retiring from their very successful business careers, decided to establish the Layton Rahmatulla Benevolent Trust with Rs million ($ ,). This was used to build and run a mobile eye-hospital in Tando Bago a small town kilometres east of Karachi. They envisioned an organization which would grow to provide free eye treatment to the poor & underprivileged citizens across the length & breadth of Pakistan so that no Pakistani would go blind just because he/she could not afford the treatment. Since its inception years ago LRBT, through its hospitals and Clinics, has treated over million patients and performed over . million major and minor eye surgeries. They also left behind founding principles which we call ” The Spirit of LRBT “ which guide our activities and permeates everything that we do: years later the vision of Graham Layton & Zaka Rahmatulla is a reality and their legacy is a nationwide network of purpose-built hospitals, with state of the art equipment and clinics in all the provinces. Our Founding Principles All treatment at LRBT should be totally free for the poor so that no man, woman or child becomes blind just because he/she cannot afford the treatment. Treatment should be appropriate, state-of-the-art. Charity should not mean second-rate treatment. There should be no discrimination due to gender, caste, ethnicity, language, religion or sect. Patients should be treated with compassion and dignity..
