Hi!

 

We've been up to a lot of things in 2013. We were officially approved by the Bangladesh Civil Surgeon to administer immunizations in our ward.  

In March, we gave 100 children Vitamin A supplements as part of the National Vitamin A Plus Campaign.
Vitamin A capsules will help eliminate blindness among children by improving their eyesight as well as enhance children's growth and immune system. We also held eye treatment camp in partnership with Bangladesh Jatio Andha Kalyan Somity (BJAKS) Hospital in Comilla at the MAAWS Health Complex. We had 300 villagers in attendance and 196 of them were treated for eye-related issues. 20 patients were found to be in need of surgery, 48 patients received prescriptions for glasses while the rest of the patients received general treatment. 

 

We cannot thank you enough for your faith in us and believing in our mission. I know there are a lot of other ways you could have spent this money, but you believe in our cause, so you chose to invest it in our project. Because of this investment, I want you to feel like part of our team. We're in this together. I want our success to be your success. Together we can all work to provide people with the opportunities to uplift themselves out of poverty.

Please tell your friends and family about our project by sharing the link on your blogs or social networks.

Thank you again for all you have done to help this cause.

Best,

Juhi
