Dear Donors!!

Greetings from India. 

Mr Mangaldas has conveyed special thanks and gratitude to you for helping him. He is very poor and lives in a small village. He works as a laborer in agriculture. His per day earning is less than 7$. He has two daughters and one son. Mangaldas having a blurred vision, he was not able to work in the field. He was very worried. He did not have money for the surgery. Even, he had the impression that eye surgery is very risky, and he might lose his eye too.  He heard about outreach camp of BPA eye hospital and came for the check-up. He was told that he would require to undergo cataract surgery. He was worried about the financial cost of the surgery. The hospital explained to him that everything is free of charge, even the bus would pick you from your village and drop it back. He came to the hospital and did the cataract surgery. He was so happy to see his eyesight was restored which did not cost him anything. He can work without any trouble. He is very thankful to you for helping him.  Many more Mangaldas are waiting for their turn. Together we can do more. 

In the last previous reporting period, 48 outreach camps were organized in very remote and tribal areas of Arravali and Sabarkantha district. 7643 patients were provided with eye care treatment. 2787 patients have been provided free cataract surgery services. 

The hospital has upgraded its services by adding developing Ultra-modern laminar modular operation theatre and latest machinery for Keratoplasty. The newly appointed Governor Govt. of Gujarat had inaugurated this operation theatre.
