Story of Rabia

35 years old Rabia got blind in one eye when she was very young. Living in a small town of Naseerabad her parents did not have access to proper treatment and poor Rabia lost her eye. Although visually disabled, Rabia was a cheerful person and performed her daily chores, looked after the house and her family until one day her 3 year old nephew hit her with sharp stick that pierced her left eye. Her parents immediately took her to a local doctor who gave her some painkillers that relieved the pain but soon her vision started to deteriorate with a white spot that appeared on her cornea.

Rabia who uptil now was facing life’s challenges courageously now lost hope as she had become dependant on her parents. Upon finding out about her condition, her in-laws also broke the engagement which came as another shock to the poor family. Her desperate parents took her to an eye specialist who diagnosed traumatic hyper mature Cataract in her eye that needed to be operated costing them Rs.15,000/- which they simply couldn’t afford and returned home hoping for a miracle.

 Their prayers were answered soon when a neighbor told her to visit LRBT hospital in Gambat where all treatment as well as surgery is performed absolutely free.

 She visited the hospital with her aunt on 26-10-2011 and after her thorough examination she was given a date for her surgery. Upon arriving on the given date her surgery was performed under latest Technique of Phaco emulsification with Intra Ocular Lens.

 By The Grace of Almighty Allah her vision in her left eye was restored and Rabia was very happy to be able to see clearly once again. She was full of prayers for the supporters and staff of LRBT and regarded the hospital as a safety net for poor blind of Pakistan.
