Giving Sight to the Cataract Blind

Colors of Life

Hello Friends,

We strive to give gifts that do a world of good. Blindness affects rich and poor, young and old—but it is the poor and the old who suffer the greatest burden. Our team of ophthalmologists is working assiduously to combat the challenges faced by increasing number of people suffering from cataract blind by providing quality of treatments for free or at nominal cost to the destitute. With the help of your donations were able to provide free treatment to 60 patients in the last 3 months.

Among these patients was Rehmat Bibi, who was blessed with the gift of sight. As the bandage was removed, it was a moment of surprise for her, she could see the colors of life, then a radiant smile beamed as the she saw the faces of her children and loved ones for the first time in years. It was a miracle for her.

It is with your contributions that we have achieved our goals and may we continue hand-in-hand to work together to give boundless joy to the people that we serve.
