 Dear Supporters and well wisher,

Christmas & New Year Greetings from NBJK!!

My heart is filled with gratitude while sharing this report to you all. I am happy to share that in this quarter we conducted 60 eye surgeries and restored the vision of cataract patients. The disadvantaged rural people who cannot afford private medication and medical facilities are being treated and regaining a dignified life after successful surgeries is not only facilitating the beneficiaries but also motivating and courageous for us. I hope you will enjoy reading the remarkable change made in the lives of beneficiaries through your contribution. I am hereby sharing two success stories of the beneficiaries.

Mrs. Chando belongs to Zokat Village, Chouparan, Hazaribagh. She is a 40 years old lady. In her family there are 7 members including one son and four daughters. Her son is studying and daughters are married. Most of the times, Chando is engaged with the household chores. And whenever she gets time she works at her own agriculture field or even in others field also. Her husband is auto rickshaw driver, and for a day her husband earns maximum two hundred rupees per day. Her Husband is the only earning member of the family since her only son is studying in high school. Somehow she was managing her family. Few months back she suddenly felt vision problem in her eyes and could not see properly. One day she came to LNJP Eye Hospital’s camp and met with camp organiser. Mrs. Chando shared her current condition with the camp organizer. She was diagnosed with cataract in her eye. She underwent cataract surgery as free of cost with your kind donation under GLOBAL GIVING. Now Chando is back to her normal life with ratified vision. She is confident and happy while sharing her feedbacks.

 Another person named Ankit is a student belongs to Gaya, Bihar. Few years ago he realized that his vision sight is constantly decreasing. He couldn’t read the book. His father is a marginal framer and hardly manages to earn Rs. 3000 to 4000 per month. This small amount was not enough to run the family even. Therefore he was simply unable to manage the money for Ankit’s treatment. One day Aankit came to camp and shared his problem to the doctor. He was suffering from cataract problem. The Camp organizer brought him to Lok Nayak Jai Prakash eye hospital. After successful surgery his vision is back and Ankit is feeling happy to realize that he may study again. Subsequently, he underwent cataract surgery as free of cost under GLOBAL GIVING with your kind support. He thanks to GLOBAL GIVING and whole team of LNJP eye hospital.

 The colour of life filled with confidence and independence could not be possible without your generous support. I, on behalf of whole NBJK and the whole group of beneficiaries convey my gratitude to all of you. I hope our commitment will fulfil their life with dignity and self-reliance.

 Thanking You

Warm Regards

Greetings from NBJK,

NBJK is aiming to restore vision of 1000 poor persons from rural India in collaboration with Global Giving. Till now with the generous support of Global Giving donors we have achieved more than half of the target fixed. NBJK achieved this target through Eye Check Up camps and Cataract Surgeries in its JNJP Eye Hospital. On regular basis the camps are being organized in the villages and patients are being treated in the camps with Surgery facility. Through this project NBJK aims to cater the need of socially and economically backward people.   

SARJU SAW is one of the beneficiary lives in Pipara village. He is 62 years old man. Throughout his life he worked as a marginal farmer and sometimes even as a farm labourer. At present there are 5 members in his family. He has two sons and one daughter. After daughter’s marriage she lives with her family in another village. And his elder son is living separately with his family. Younger son who is a rickshaw puller lives with his wife one child and his parents. He works as a daily wage worker since he does not own his rickshaw.  Sarju Saw spent his entire life in suffering with monetary problem.   

Since last one and a half years, Sarju Saw was suffering from vision problem. Gradually Sarju Saw lost his vision and became dependent on his wife for his daily works. He felt himself as a burden for his family since his vision capacity was decreasing continuously and he was unable to do his work.

One day his son came to know about the Eye Screening Camp being organised by NBJK in their nearby village and brought his father there. He was diagnosed of cataract in his eye and was immediately brought to the hospital in the hospital van for operation. He was considered for free of cost cataract surgery under Global Giving. On 15th September, 2015 Sarju Saw got his cataract operated. The surgery was successful and very soon he got discharged from the hospital. He is under follow up service.

Whole of his family is so happy and conveyed their gratitude to the hospital persons and the programme.  Receiving such feedback inspires us and helps us realise we are moving in the right direction. Restoring Vision is somehow equal to restoring dignified life to the person who can lead his rest of the life independently.  Please keep supporting us in our efforts towards making a bright and colourful world for as many people as we can.

Warm Regards

Dear Supporters,

Greetings from NBJK!!

We started our journey on Global Giving with the aim to restore vision of 1000 poor cataract blind people and and extremely happy to reach the half way mark with the kind support of generous donors like you. We have successfully conducted 500 cataract operations and have restored vision of all the marginalised population we have catered our services under Global Giving, also we are satisfied to say that we are been able to restore vision of around 10,000 cataract patients in the last reporting year i.e., 2015-16. This all has been possible with the trust and unceising support of generous people like you.

Out of the many beneficiaries, Chander was one of them. He was leading a difficult life sufferng from cataract since last 2.5 years but was helpless as did not know how to get better due to his financial situation. He is a marginal farmer and grows on a small piece of land. He has four sons and all of them are married except the younger one who lives with them and supports him in his farming work. 

Life was difficult due to poor eye sight and vision was deteriorating day by day. One day his son came to know about the Eye Screening Camp being organised bu us in their nearby vilage and brought his father there. He was diagnosed of cataract in his left eye and was immediately brough to the hospital in the hospital van for operation: With proper pre tests he was successfully operated the next day on 14th December, 2015 and Chander was discharged from the hospital with instruction of regular follow-up.

With two regular follow-up visits Chander is fine and can see clearly now. He is extremely grateful for the support and says "I believe in humanity and good deeds now, I hope there are more such good people who can support people like me in need. I will inform more people in need regarding the great work carried by you people so more needy people can benefit".

Receiving such feedback inspires us and helps us realise we are moving in the right direction. Please keep supporting us in our efforts towards making a bright and colourful world for as many people as we can.

Hello Supporters,

Greetings from NBJK!! 

Its been a while and I am back to you with our recent progress report regarding our work with your kind support. With the vision to provide quality Eye care services in the remote rural villages of Jharkhand; one of the poorest state in India, NBJK established its two eye hospitals. The hospitals are now a ray of hope for many marginalised population who cannot afford to visit the hospital and get themselves treated. Infact, just visiting the hospital is a big thing for them. As transportaion in the rural areas in not readily available and government facilities are not that developed to cater the needs of the rural people.

Analysing the need and situation, NBJK organises rural Eye Care Screening camps in remote villages on a regular basis and diagnoses patients suffering with Eye diseases. The patients are referred to our Eye Hospital where they are brought in our hospital van, admitted in the hospital and successfully opretaed after pre operation tests. After successful operation they are dropped back to their villages with post medication and guidance for follow-up. The opthalmologists visit the patients for their follow-up in their villages and ensure their vision is back. 

Till date, with support from various donors, NBJK successfully operates around 10,000 cataract patients every year. It is still a drop in the ocean. And we are happy to inform that with support of various donors on GlobalGiving platform we have successfully restored vision of 496 cataract blind patients who are extremely grateful to you for your generous support. 

Samfulwa, is one such beneficiary. She lives alone as she lost her husband 5 years back and her two sons do not live with her. She survives on her Old Age Pension of Rs.500/ month and lives in dire conditions. She was suffering from cataract since last 1 and half year but did not know whom to approach until she visited our Screening camp organised in her village. Today, she can see clearly and do her household chores herself. She is grateful for the support and says "I never imagined to get my vision back, God bless you people for your noble work". 

It gives us immense satisfaction when we hear such feedback and see the happiness on the faces of our beneficiaries. It is a motivating factor for us and we request you to keep supporting us in our endeavours.

With Regards

Dear Donors,

Greetings and Happy New Year Wishes!!

Bhado is a 45 year old farmer who is the only bread earner for his 4 children and wife. Bhado despite his eye problems worked every day to fulfill the needs of his family.  He was having a really hard time working and got injured frequently due to his poor eyesight.

The passion to support his family kept him going for the last 2 years but he was really disheartened on his financial condition and was extremely worried for the future. This is the true condition of many needy people like him who have no one to help them and are leading a difficult life.

NBJK’s initiative is a hope for many of them and their faith in goodness is restored. Bhado, with hope visited the LNJP Eye Hospital and explained his situation. He was immediately admitted in the hospital and was diagnosed of severe cataract in his right eye. He was suffering with cataract since past 2 years.

With proper pre medication and diagnosis; he was successfully operated on 14th December, 2015 with the support of generous donors like you. He can see clearly now and is extremely grateful for the support. He is back to work again and says “My faith in goodness is restored and I will definitely help someone I meet if possible and will inform people about the help from the hospital and refer them as well”.

With donations from various donors like you on the Global Giving platform, we have been able to restore vision of 399 people till today who were extremely needy and are back to work and supporting their family. We look forward to your support so that we can transform lives of many more in need.

With Regards
