Clearing the clouds of cataracts
Respected Supporters and Well Wishers Heartiest Greetings from NBJK!!
Most cataracts grow slowly, and occasionally the vision loss has actually occurred over a long time in one eye, but it is not noticed by the patient until the ‘good’ eye is covered accidently.” So there’s nothing like having your eyesight and receiving the gift of sight is a very special gift. We hope you find great comfort in knowing that your donations have improved the lives of others. We are committed to ensure that all cataract patients get the best quality eye treatment. Thus we regularly measure the visual outcomes being achieved by the patients who have been operated at our LNJP eye Hospital.
“Mori’s four years of suffering”
Mori, a man who faced so many difficulties due to his eye disease and sacrificed a lot, for taking care of his sick wife. He is 65 years old man lives in village Bhairabpur of Dumka district. He has three sons and two daughters. All are married. His sons are earning on daily basis in a town. Mori is a farmer and does farming on a small piece of land. His income from farming is hardly Rs 2000-2500 and sometimes he does not get the same. His wife is suffering from some disease from so many years. She is very weak. Most of his money he spends on her treatment. Due to her ill health, he was not paying attention to his health. He was also suffering from a cataract for four years. But due to lack of money, he was not going for the treatment even he was unable to do farming work properly. One day NBJK staff organised an eye camp in his village. He went there and told his problem to the camp organiser. He was diagnosed with a cataract. The camp organiser told him to come to LNJP eye hospital, Dumka. Mori went there and underwent free cataract surgery. He also got post medical treatment and spectacles. Now his vision is good. He is very thankful to Global Giving and donor for their generous support.
Of course, none of Operation Eyesight’s work could happen without your generosity. We are very thankful to all of you for your kind support.
Hope for tomorrow

Igniting a vision, a dream, a future
Eyes are one of the most important sensory organs in the human body because it renders vision and the power to see. In our society, there are so many people who are living a very pitiful life due to low eyesight and blindness. With your support, we are trying to reach more and needier people who have lost their eyesight due to cataract and providing them new vision for making their life easy and independent. We are very obliged to share this report with all of you.
Bahadur got support
Bahadur stays with his wife in Barmasiya. He is 70 years old poor man and living a very heart-rending life in this age. He lives in a mud house. He has two sons and one daughter. All are married. His sons work in Mumbai. Bahadur used to do labour work for surviving but one year ago he broke his left leg and due to this, he is unable to do labouring work. There is no another source of income. Both old husband and wife depended on their son. Unfortunately, their kids don’t take care of them. They generally come once in two years and hardly give money to their parents or sometimes they don’t give. They just come for the small piece of land on which his hut is made. Bahadur already had so many problems, now his vision was deteriorating. But he was just losing his hope to live.
But one day our camp organiser organised a camp in his village. One of his neighbours took him in the camp where he found cataract in his right eye. Our camp organizer told him about free surgery in eye hospital Dumka. Bahadur got free transportation facility to reach the hospital and underwent a successful surgery which returned his vision. He is very happy and said, “As a father, I worked hard for the rearing of my children but they did not support when I needed them but NBJK and donors through Global Giving helped me to see again. I will always be obliged to all of them.”
We thanks for your generous support.
