Dear Donors, and Well Wishers

Seasons Greetings!!

 

I am happy to share a story of Mr. Pannaji.  He is from a village name Bhilwara Rajasthan. He owns less than 1 bigha of land in Bhilwara. He migrated to Gujarat for work. He started tea vending stall for his livelihood. He lives in a kutcha house. He is the sole earner of the family. He used to earn 10 to 15 thousand before he started losing his vision. He lost his vision suddenly. He visited many private and government hospital. The doctors suggested him only surgery is the only option to restore his vision. The surgery was very expensive, and he could not afford the same. He was suggested to visit Blind People Association Hospital in Bareja. He was diagnosed with Adherent Leucoma with Cataractous lens. He was advised Penetrating Keratoplasty with IOL by Dr and the same was done free of cost. His vision gets restored. He lives a very happy life again with your supports. 

We are very happy to share that our hospital Manager Mr Dharmendra has been selected as a President of Vision 2020 Gujarat Chapter.

In the last reporting period, we have conducted treated more than 3000 patients, and 653 cataract surgeries have been performed without any charges. We have performed 30 Keratoplasty free of cost. 

In the year 2019, You have helped us to restore eyesight too poor people in remote rural areas by sending us funds for cataract surgery.  Ms. Naseem  from North Gujarat can work in the open fields and contribute to the family income thanks to cataract surgery performed at our BPA hospital funded by donors like you…. Who are so far away but so near our hearts. 

Our little help has gone such a long way……. You can only experience this when you meet these people in person and see how their lives have been transformed from dependence to dignity. 

 We thank you and wish you and your loved ones the very best for the festive season and hope and pray that the new year bestows blessings on you. 

 

We wish you a very Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year 2020. 

Together we can do more.

 

Thanking you


With Best Wishes
