Layton Rahmatulla Benevolent Trust (LRBT)
History and Background

In December 1984 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 1 million ($ 66,000).

This was used to build and run a mobile eye hospital in Tando Bago a small town 250 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.

They also left behind 4 founding principles which we call The Spirit of LRBT which guide our activities and permeates everything that we do:
• All treatment at LRBT should be totally free so that no man, woman or child should become blind
just because he or she cannot afford the treatment.
• Treatment should be appropriate state of the art. Charity does not mean second-rate treatment.
• There should be no discrimination due to gender, caste, ethnicity, language, religion or sect.
• Patients to be treated with compassion and dignity.

23 years later the vision of Graham Layton & Zaka Rahmatulla is a reality and their legacy is a nationwide network of 15 purpose built hospitals with state of the art equipment and 36 primary eye-care centres/outreach clinics in all the 4 provinces.
