With the constant support of donors like you we are able to reach the people constantly who are in need. Here is a recent update and our progress report. 

1)    NBJK has been able to constantly conduct Village Awareness cum Screening Camp where the villagers learn about cataract and get their eyes screened for cataract. More than 1000 people turned-up to the screening camps and got diagnosed for cataract via specialised team of doctors and nurses. A total of 280 patients were diagnosed of cataract. They were referred to the base hospital for further diagnosis and treatment. Within the last 3 months; NBJK has conducted 26 Screening Camps around various villages of Hazaribagh district.

2)    A total of 114 cataract patients have restored their vision within last three months via the support of various donors like you.

Case Study: Kajri Masumas, 60, lives in Gangwar village in Dumka district of Jharkhand. There are 14 members in her family. After the sad demise of her husband she is dependent on other members in the family. She herself works in other household to earn her livelihood.

Since last two years she was suffering from bilateral cataract and was finding it difficult to earn her livelihood due to her poor eyesight. She attended the Screening camp and her life changed after that. She was brought to the hospital, diagnosed, treated and dropped back to her village with proper operative medicines.

Today Kajri has managed to again work like earlier and visualize this beautiful world. She expressed her gratitude to the donors and supporters for their timely intervention.

We express our sincere gratitude to all our donors and supporters who are supporting our project in all possible ways of providing vision to the needy and marginalised. We wish to receive your constant support in future as well so that we can provide eyesight to many more in need as there are many more like her still untouched and hoping for someone to come to their aid.
