Jhargram is situated in the extreme north west part of Paschim Medinipur, West Bengal, India, habitated mostly by poor, down trodden tribal people. Jhargram is connected by South Eastern railway with Kolkata and other parts of India. Jhargram is also accessible by road ways. It is connected with NH-6 by state highway about 15 km North of LODHASULI.

Geographically Jhargram Lions Eye Hospital is about half kilometer north of Jhargram railway station at village Gaighata.

There was no eye hospital in this west part of the district to serve the poor patients suffering from eye diseases.

Lions Clubs International has given priority to eradicate preventable and curable blindness and other eye related diseases in the name of “Sight First Project”. Lions Club of Jhargram took this as their prime project and established this Eye Hospital with the help of, donations from local lion hearted people.
