PROJECT REPORT_April, 2014.
Cataract operations are going on smoothly at our Karmirhath Hospital. Thanks to our overseas donors for helping us. We are happy to provide services to our increasing number of patients. During the last three months, attendances of eye patients are increasing.
- Motiron Begum (Not her real name): Motiron Begum is 55 years old. Her one son and a daughter left her after their marriages. Her husband is old and very sick for long. She works in a rice mill as a day labor. She developed cataract in her eyes. She almost went blind with her cataract. She could not afford treatment of her eyes. Somehow, she heard about Karmirhath hospital where, she heard, nobody is denied treatment for want of money. One day she came to the hospital. She was thoroughly examined and, later, cataract operations were conducted on both of her eyes free of charge. Motiron Begum has now returned to her profession as day labor. She is very grateful to Karmirhath hospital and to those who provide fund for such operations.
- Sandhya Rani (Not her real name): Sandhya Rani, aged 65 years, hails from the nearby
Polashbari, about 20 kilometers from Gaibandha. She lost her husband about six years ago. She is
very poor. She works as a domestic help. A few years ago, she developed cataract in her eyes.
Doctors suggested operation. As she is very poor, she was unable to manage fund for her
operation. At the advice of her neighbor she one day came to Karmirhath Hospital. After necessary
tests, Cataract operations were performed on both of her eyes in two occasions. Sandhya Rani has
got back her eye sights on both of her eyes.
I thank sincerely GlobalGiving team for helping us with fund that enables us
to provide free services to eye patients who need cataract operations to restore their
