We extend our wholehearted support to LVPEI through our program, All for Eyes. We are overwhelmed by the response received from our employees who actively participated in various programs and contributed towards the cause, especially those employees involved with our People with Disabilities Network.”

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Faisal Uddin, Sr. Vice President and Business Leader Synchrony Financial India, said, “Our company culture is based on giving back to the communities in which we live and work, and volunteerism through various activities. Each volunteer hour contributed by the employee is monetized and donated to LVPEI as a part of the All for Eyes campaign to provide improved vision to an additional 300 people. We are committed to the cause of providing vision to those in need and look forward to initiatives that better our society.”
