A simple surgery changed Hulladi's life.
Hulladi Gowda is a 70-year-old man from Mandya, Karnataka. He worked in the fields around his home every day to earn for his family. They still struggled to make ends meet.
When both his sons left to make a living for themselves, he became the only earning member of his family. He had to look after his wife and his daughter with a failing eyesight. He did not know how he would continue to work and earn enough for the day.
One morning he heard an announcement about a free eye camp in his village. At the camp he was diagnosed with cataract. He became worried as he knew that he could not afford the treatment. His miracle came through when he was identified by Sankara Eye Hospital for a free surgery.
After the surgery, he could see clearly and do the work he had to do to put food on the table. He still has many struggles but being able to look after himself and his family gives him the security he needs to keep going.
