There light at the end of the tunnel

Lets add color to life
Lets add color to life

In today’s day and age we have forgotten to be thankful for the gifts we have been given: The gift of sight, the gift of hearing which gives us the ability to enjoy what life has to offer to the fullest.

We waste our time in getting upset about what we do not have: the new car, the new bag, the latest designer collection but we are never thankful for what we have.

There are countless among us who can’t see and what makes it even worse is the realization that lack of financial resources is the reason why so many can’t see.

Cataract is a progressive, painless clouding of the natural, internal lens of the eye. Cataracts block light, making it difficult to see clearly. Over an extended period of time, cataracts can cause blindness. However a small surgical procedure can rectify the issue enabling so many to lead a better life.

Ali, one of the child who had went through surgery was not even able to see beyond 2 feet is now able to lead a normal life and perform better at school. 

The concept of camps has now moved to become a permnant feature at Fatima Memorial Hospital and everyday through Monday to Saturday the Eye department operates providing consultations and surgeries to deserving patients. 

We at Fatima Memorial Hospital hold regular camps to provide free surgeries for Cataract. With the support of philanthropists and donors we have been able to treat so many and given them the opportunity to see the colours of life. We can keep providing free treatment continuously with your support.

 

Support us today and bring back the beauty of the world for those who can’t see.
