HELP RESTORE EYESIGHTS TO 500 BANGLADESHIS PROJECT REPORT_December, 2013. It is being observed that incidences of cataract patients have been increasing at our hospital during the last few months. As already reported, patients are now attending hospitals at their own initiatives. Previously, Eye Camps were arranged in remote areas to detect cataract patients and they were brought to our hospital at our costs for operations to remove cataracts. Karmirhath hospital is giving them necessary services with all earnestness. We are following our old practices of not letting any patients go un-served for want of money. Case Studies: 1. Morzina Begum: Morzina Begum is 83 years old. She lives with her only son who is very poor. A few years ago, Morzina had problems with her eyes. She had cataract in both of her eye sights. As she had no money, she could not get any treatment. She almost went blind. Luckily, she came to know about Karmirhath hospital where poor patients also get good treatment. One day one kind hearted person helped her to come to our hospital. At the hospital, after examinations, cataracts were removed from both of her eyes. Morzina Begum was very happy to get her eye sights restored without paying anything. She was extremely grateful to those ho paid for her treatment. 2. Abdul Kader: Abdul Kader, 54 years of age, hails from the nearby district of Polashbari. He is a poor person with five children. He had some problem with his eyes. When contacted a local doctor, he was informed that he had cataract which needed surgery. Being a poor man he expressed his inability to arrange fund for his cataract operation. The attending doctor who was aware of the services of Karmirhath hospital of serving poor patients free advised his patient Abdul Kader to contact Karmirhath hospital. At the hospital, Abdul Kader was operated and his cataract was removed free of charge. Abdul Kader was very grateful for the free service to GlobalGiving and Karmirhath Hospital. ATTACHMENTS: 1.
