Gift sight by sponsoring a cataract surgery


Every monthly donation provides more patients like Rajmati with surgery

Seventy-year-old Rajmati was dependent on her sons for sustenance. Her age-related issues didn't allow her to work for a living. Things became worse when she developed loss of vision due to cataracts.

Her sons didn't earn enough to pay for her surgery. As Rajmati decided to resign to her fate, they came across the free of cost surgery camp organized by Daudnagar Organization for Rural Development.

Today, after a successful surgery Rajmati has her vision restored. She has regained her confidence and does her personal chores with hardly any assistance from family members. It is like a new life for her.

Story from the field

Ramlagan Paswan 69-year-old poor man began to suffer from diminishing vision in his eyes which eventually caused him to stop working in his fields and stay at home. His vision had deteriorated to such an extent that he needed a family member to support him in all his daily activities. His village is as remote as it is picturesque. There is a private eye hospital located about 40 Km from the village. Such distances were just not traversable for an old man with vision impairment. This in addition to his poor economic condition stopped him from availing any treatment for his eyes. He hoped that he would get some support from his sons but none of them helped. He was despondent about his fate and anxious about the future. One day, a village shopkeeper told him about a handbill, announcing a free eye screening camp in a DORD hospital, Daudnagar, Aurangabad, Bihar. He managed to reach the camp on the day of the eye screening and there he was diagnosed with cataracts in both his eyes. His left eye were operated on and post-surgery, he can now see as clearly as before. He has resumed working in his fields and caring for his animals. Additionally, Ramlagan takes advantage of his regained vision and his new found ability to travel by going to the market regularly to sell the vegetables he grows.
