Sometimes dreams seen in the dark can come true

By Asma Rao | Head of Marketing and Resource Mobilization

Let's help them see the light
Let's help them see the light

Sometimes a little nudge, a push in the right direction can change lives; 

Cataract is a clouding of the lens inside the eye which leads to a decrease in vision. It is the most common cause of blindness worldwide and is conventionally treated with surgery

Globally, cataracts cause moderate to severe disability in 53.8 million (2004), 52.2 million of whom are in low and middle income countries.

In many countries, surgical services are inadequate, and cataracts remain the leading cause of blindness. Even where surgical services are available, low vision associated with cataracts may still be prevalent as a result of long waits for, and barriers to, surgery, such as cost, lack of information and transportation problems.

We at Fatima Memorial Hospital perform these procedures free of costs for patients who cannot afford it but we need your support.

We are in the position to improve the lives of many but it can only be possible with your help. Due to financial constraints it is very difficult for us to provide free treatment to a lot of patients.

Today it is our responsibility to help those in need because not everyone has the same opportunities that we might have.

So please support us in our mission to bring light to the ones who deserve it the most.
