KARMIRHATH HOSPITAL, GAIBANDHA
“HELP TREAT 1200 POOR DIABETIC PATIENTS”.
December , 2013.
The Eye and Diabetic Camp held at Fashitola in Gobindagonj Upo-Zilla which is about 35 kilometer from Gaibandha was a big success. A large number of people attended the camp to check if they are diabetic or if they have developed cataract. 48 people were primarily detected to be diabetics. They were advised to come to Karmirhath Hospital for further check-up. All the 48 people later attended the hospital and, after detailed check up, were found to be diabetics. Each one was registered as a diabetic patient and given Diabetic Guide Book. Necessary trainings were given to them by our Dietitian and they were given treatment by the Consultant.
(1) Lovely Begum: Aged 42 years, Lovely Begum was diagnosed as a diabetic 25 years ago. Being a very poor person she could not afford treatment. Initially, she could not get any treatment due to her poverty. Her husband, a day labor could not help her. Her life continued at this state of her. Meanwhile, she had five miscarriages! One day one of our old patients brought her to Karmirhath hospital where she was admitted and examined thoroughly. After initial tests, she was given Diabetic Awareness Lessons, a Guide Book and free medicines including Insulin. Her diabetes has almost stabilized. She is very grateful to Karmirhath and the overseas donors.

HELP RESTORE EYESIGHTS TO 500 BANGLADESHIS PROJECT REPORT - September, 2013. Following a few awareness programs in the remote rural areas during the last two months, there has been an increased attendance of cataract patients at Karmirhath hospital at Gaibandha. Unlike previous years, patients are coming at their own initiative. It’s a good sign. Case Studies: 1. Halima Bewa: She is 95 years old, lives with one of her daughter who is also very poor. Halima had her cataract quite a few years ago. Being very poor, she could not get any proper treatment. As a result, she became almost blind. Last month, one of her kind-hearted neighbors brought her at Karmirhath hospital. At the hospital, all necessary tests were conducted and kept her there for operation of her cataract. Her cataract was removed from one eye through manual Phaco surgery on August 20, 2013. Cataract from her other eye will be removed next month. Since her admission at the hospital, she was given free treatment including operations, lens and medicines. She is very grateful to the donors. 2. Jasim Uddin: 90 years old. Developed cataract two years ago. Could not afford operation due to acute poverty. He came to Karmirhath hospital about 2 months ago.

Ever since a concerted awareness program was started in March, 2013, there has been a marked in crease in number of diabetic patients attending our hospital.
60 new diabetic patients were registered. After necessary tests, proper treatments were given. Guide books and necessary awareness lessons were given. Patients’ relatives and friends who accompanied them were given awareness program.
