We at Touching Souls International have undertaken a number of eye improvements programs for the poorer sections of Bangladesh. A significant population of rural Bangladesh suffers from eye related problems, some of which are even caused due to a number of deficiencies. However, most of them are poor enough to even pay for the medication or the surgical procedure. In an endeavor to help these people, we have started the eye care programs in the villages. Under the programs, the poor villagers are provided financial help and also free treatment services.
Our main project in this regard is the “Sight Restoration & Blindness Prevention Project” which we have undertaken in many villages of Bangladesh. Since 2005, this program has come a long way and has helped people with a new hope to see again. In this project, we organize eye camps in various villages across many districts and provide free treatment of various eye problems. We have a team of dedicated people, who are expert eye specialists and proficient in eye treatment. Till now we have successfully provided 939 free cataract removal surgery with lens implant for the very needy peoples of remote villages.
The “Sight Restoration & Blindness Prevention Project” have tie ups with the renowned Bangladesh National Blind Society in Mymensingh. Together we provide free eye check up camps, in an endeavor to eradicate blindness from the country. We also provide free cataract surgery with lens implant programs for those who are suffering from blurred and defective eye sight disorders.
You too can become a part of our eye care programs by contributing some valuable donations. They are absolutely free from taxes and the money will be spent in the right areas. You can make a donation of $70 for sponsoring a cataract surgery. By this donation, you can bring a ray of hope and make a person see again with his or her own eyes!
