Jamila Begum, 37, is one of 36 cataract patients whose cataracts were removed by Phaco Surgery on June 29, 2011 at our Karmirhath Hospital. Mother of 3 kids, she was having problems in seeing things around her including her kids. Now after surgery, she is very happy to see her kids again and doing her normal house-hold work.
Like Jamila Begum, we picked up a total of 36 poor cataract patients in July last through holding eye camps in remote rural areas.
We procured a brand new Operation Microscope for performing phaco surgery. The costly instrument was sponsored by our regular US based donor, North American Bangladeshi Islamic Community (NABIC). We are now able to serve our patients in better ways.
Following the Eye Camp on February 20, 2011, 29 cataract patients were selected for surgery. Operations were performed on these patients on February 23, 2011 at our hospital. All patients were doing fine after operation and the happy people went home to their near & dear ones.
We at Karmirhath along with the patients are highly grateful to the donors who made it possible to restore eye sights to 270 poor patients so far under the project, “Restore Eye Sights to 500 Bangladeshis”.
God Bless All the Donors & Those at GlobalGiving.
Due to a spell of severe cold wave that swept through the northern part of Bangladesh during December, 2010 and January, 2011, Eye Camps for detecting the cataract patients could not be held in the rural areas.
Since weather is now improving, we have a plan to hold an eye camp on February 20, 2011.
We performed cataract surgery on 12 patients who came to our hospital. Thus the total number of patients whose eye sights are restored till today under this project is 241.

Two Eye Camps were organized in late November, 2010. 36 cataract patients were selected and operated on December 10, 2010. All patients got back their eye sights after operation. They are very happy to join their family and be contributing members of their family. All are very thankful to the donors who donated through GlobalGiving. The total number of patients whose eye sights are restored under this project is 193 + 36 = 229 M Abdus Sobhan President, Karmirhath, Gaibandha, Bangladesh
A free Eye Camp was held in the premises of Karmirhath Hospital on August 3, 2010. Out of total 600 patients, 53 were detected with cataract. These patients were tested for blood-sugar and other probable ailments. Cataract surgeries were conducted on 25 patients on August 4 and on the remaining 28 patients on August 11, 2010. Each surgery was conducted by a team of three experienced surgeons and doctors and all operations were successful. All the 53 patients have their eye sights restored and each and every happy patient was extremely grateful to the donors who made their operations possible through their liberal donations!!!
