Back to Work

Santosh Sah Back to His Livelihood
Santosh Sah Back to His Livelihood

He is Santosh Sah from village Chorkatta, district Dumka, Jharkhand, India. He has a son, who is 17 years old, studying in government school in class Xth. They belong to Below Poverty Line and lives in a Mud house. For livelihood, Santosh used to collect dry-woods and sell it in the market.

Few months back, Santosh lost his vision and was unable to see and collect woods which worsen their economic condition.  Due to poor family condition, he was unable to visit any hospital and was forced to live a miserable life.

Recently NBJK had organised an Eye screening camp in his area, where he was identified with cataract. It was found that, he had developed cataract in both of his eyes and was not able to see even an object placed at one meter. He has matured cataract and could have lost his vision permanently if would not have intervened at correct time.

He was brought to NBJK-run Eye Hospital and his vision was restored by cataract surgery in one of his eye. He was provided with necessary medicines and spectacles free of cost.

Now, he is back to his work again, earning his livelihood and sustaining his family. He is very happy that he can now see properly. He still have cataract in one eye and he is called in hospital again after 2 months for surgery.

Your kind and generous support will help us to reach more poor and marginalised people living in remote areas like Santosh Sah. 

All donations given in the month of December will be 100% matched by Globalgiving, making your donation double.
