Challenge

There are 15 million blind people in India. In India 80% of the blindness is either curable or avoidable. The major setback is that most of the blind are scattered in rural areas and eye care units are set up in urban areas and are unaffordable for common man. Taking this is account NBJK has established eye hospital at Chouparan, Hazaribagh district with the support of institutional donors. A small support can provide vision to a needy person by providing a cataract operation.

Solution

The proposed project will provide vision to 1000 cataract blind people who are cursing their lives due to their blindness residing in the remote rural villages. From the amount raised the patients will be identified, diagnosed and operated in the NBJK hospital. They will also be provided with post operative medicines and consumables which will restore their vision.

Long-Term Impact

The long term impact will be the improved vision and eye sight of 1000 beneficiaries together with better financial status of the family leading a healthy and happy life. Due to cataract the patients were facing problem in carrying their work and their economic conditions deteriorated with time. With the restored vision they can get back to their work and take the responsibilities of their families as earlier. The project will also improve the well-being and health of these families.
