Karmirhath Hospital is located at Gaibandha, a small rural town in the North-West Corner of Bangladesh. The hospital has been serving the people of Gaibandha and the surrounding districts since 1986. The Eye Care Section of the Hospital holds Cataract Surgery Session every month. During the last three months 1,680 eye patients were treated at the hospital. Cataract operations were conducted on 94 patients.

Karmirhath Hospital has been popular due to two reasons:

  • One Ophthalmologist, Dr. Abdus Samad has been serving Karmirhath Hospital for 21 years with widespread reputation. Another Ophthalmologist, Dr. Mokhlesur Rahman has been serving for over 15 years with equally widespread reputation. Patients are very satisfied with their sincere and caring services.
  • Karmirhath has been partnering with GlobalGiving Foundation since 2009. Since then patients have come to know that there are good-hearted people overseas, who donate for the treatment of poor patients in third world countries like Bangladesh. This fact has been attracting poor patients to come to Karmirhath Hospital for treatment.
