Gift sight with a cataract surgery

Impact

Every monthly donation helps more patients like Jamnaben with surgery

Hailing from Ahmedabad, Jamnaben stays with her huge extended family. However, when she suffered an injury that left her with a cataract in an eye, Jamnaben felt so embarrassed, that she refused to go out in public or even see family members.

She was referred to BPA, where she was diagnosed with Cataract and recommended for surgery. She was able to get a cataract operation just in time. She was provided with free surgery, stay, food and post-operative treatment.

Having completely recovered, Jamnaben now feels comfortable around her family and looks forward to becoming a bigger part of society with her renewed vision. You can help BPA in their quest to restore vision and confidence to many more like her.

Program Description

Cataracts are often related to the aging process, but they are also occasionally found in younger people. It is completely treatable but if untreated, the person becomes totally blind. But due to poverty, many senior citizens live with blindness.

The Navalbhai and Hiraba Eye Hospital set up by the BPA, in collaboration with the Bareja General Hospital Trust provides comprehensive eye care services to people with eye problems, in several villages around Bareja. The program conducts free eye camps and surgeries for poor patients suffering from cataracts. Patients are provided with consultation, surgery, accommodation, spectacles, medicine, transportation, and follow-up treatment.

Donations made to this program support the cost of surgery, sutures, lens, and administrative expenses.

Close to 3 lakh patients are served annually by the Blind People's Association. By supporting this program you can help poor senior citizens get free cataract surgery and reclaim their life.
