Khudiram ready to feed his cows

Khudiram (70 years) is a poor villager belonging to Gaaybathan village of Jama block. He has a son and a daughter. His son is a migrant labourer and very often goes outside for months. Khudiram has to look after the family in absence of his son. Due to cataract problem since last 8-9 months, he was unable to rear his cows and work properly to support his family. He was leading a troublesome life until he visited his daughter; where he came to know about the camp being organised by us. He attended the camp and was diagnosed of cataract in his right eye. He was brought to the hospital and was successfully operated. He is also provided with medication and spectacles and is advised to visit the hospital again for follow-up checkup. Now, he has a good vision and is able to carry with his livelihood activities and support his family. 

There are many people like Khudiram who have restored their vision and are back to their normal life with support of kind people like you. Khudiram and their entire family expressed their sincere gratitude towards your kind support. Please keep supporting to restore many more people who are in need.

 

Thank You.

With Regards,

Cataract Surgery Report

Sahasram working in the field
Sahasram working in the field

NBJK with its vision to provide quality Eye care services to the rural poor marginalised population in Jharkhand is working consistently to reach the people in need. Every week Village Screening camps are organised at different locations where villagers can visit the camp and get themselves diagnosed free of cost. The camp has been running since long and is extremely effective to reach the people in need who cannot afford to visit the hospital on their own. 

The beneficiaries who are diagnosed of cataract and transferred to the base hospital in the Hospital van and are admitted in the hospital for the further diagnosis and operation. After the pre-diagnosis; the patients are operated for cataract by the Opthalmologist and are also provided with medicines and glasses. They are dropped back into the villages in the van with necessary precautions and guidance for regular check-up.

There are many people visiting the camp who were having cataract since last 2-3 years but were unable to afford treatment and were helpless. Sahasram was one of them. He is 64; and belongs to Banwara village of Jharkhand state. He has two daughters and 1 son. All of them are maried. His son is a daily wage labourer and takes care of the family. Due to cataract, Sahasram was entirely dependent on others for his movement and daily activities. Due to poverty they were unable to afford the treatment cost. They came to know about the Village Screening camp and attended it. He was diagnosed of cataract and was operated successfully. Now, he can see properly and is helping is son to support the family by doing some farm work.

I am also taking the opportunity to share the live coverage of NBJK's work on cataract surgery being broadcasted in "TIMES NOW" news channel. Please follow the link to see the video:

Continuining on our effort to reach the poorest, remote and rural marginalised people, NBJK conducted rural remote Village Screening camps for cataract in the remote villages of Dumka district. Around 500 people were screened for cataract in the last 3 months and 50 identified suffering from it. All the beneficiaries who were diagnosed of cataract were brought to the Eye hospital in van and were admitted.

Paku Kisku, 75 years old was one of the patients who was diagnosed of cataract in both eyes. She belongs to a remote village in Jarmundi block. She is a widow and stays with her son. Her son is a daily wage labourer and earns a meagre income to support the family. She was brought to the hospital and was further diagnosed and tested for cataract. She was admitted in the hospital and was successfuly operated for cataract in her right eye with pre and post medication and spectacles on 26th January, 2014.

She can see things clearly now and can walk independently and do household chores. She said "I was suffering from cataract since last 2 years but could not afford the surgery cost. Without the support of donors it was impossible for me to see again. I bless them for their noble efforts". 

With your kind support we are able to restore vision of the needy and poor who were always left behind. Please keep supporting in future as well to restore vision of the needy.

We express our sincere gratitude towards your generosity and helping the one in need.
