Story of Bulbul:

Bulbul who is 40 years old is a poor day laborer. He developed cataract in both of his eyes long ago. He was almost blind. He could not manage sufficient funds for surgery of his eyes. He lives about 50 km from Karmirhath hospital. About few months ago, Bulbul came to know that Karmirhath hospital at Gaibandha performs cataract operations on poor patients free of charge. He came to the hospital in August this year and got his right eye operated for cataract. Later on September 25, 2012, cataract operation was performed on his left eye. Bulbul is now very happy that he can see with both of his eyes. He is very grateful to GlobalGiving for providing funds for his operations.

Please see attached photos! Thank you for your continuous support through GlobalGiving.

                                                   PROJECT REPORT

                                                       October 09, 2012. 

On September 19, 2012 a camp for screening Diabetic and Cataract patients was held at Sadullahpur Upo-Zilla which is about 15 km from Gaibandha town. Before holding the camp, wide publicity was given so that more and more people attend the camp.

 

An Awareness Program on Diabetic as well as on Eye Care was held at the Upo-Zilla Head Quarter on September 09, 2012. Speakers consisted of Diabetic Specialists, Eye Specialists and Prominent Social Workers. About 4000 people attended the Program.

 

About 300 people attended the Diabetic and Cataract Screening Camp held on September 19. 20 were detected having diabetes. These patients attended our hospital on September 25, 2012. Necessary tests were conducted, Guide Books given and Diabetes Awareness lessons were also given to them.

 

 Case of Rozina: Rozina Begum 45, wife of Idris Ali lives in a village named Mithapukur about 50 kilometer from Gaibandha town. She is very poor and has been suffering from diabetes for the last 12 years. Her husband is a very poor person and could not afford treatment that was available about 75 kilometer away. Having deprived of treatment and proper diet, Rozina became physically handicapped and was unable to walk. She used to move around riding on the back of her husband. Knowing the plight of poor Rozina, she was brought to Karmirhath Hospital for treatment of her diabetes.

 

First of all, she was given a wheelchair, free of cost, from our another program, ‘Free Distribution of Wheelchairs to Poor Disabled People’ sponsored by US Based “Free Wheelchair Mission”.   

 

She was admitted to the hospital and kept under constant observation for three weeks.

All necessary tests were conducted. Medicines were provided free of costs. She now visits the hospital every fortnight.

 

Rozina Begum is now very grateful to Karmirhath and GlobalGiving for arranging her free treatment. Pictures of Rozina Begum are attached.
