Teachers at a school in Bhopal, India, identified 4 year old Rukmani's cataract as part of a Sightsavers School Eye Health Programme.
Sightsavers in association with Baxter India and Dr. Shroff’s Charity Eye Hospital launched a new Vision Centre under its Urban Eye Health Programme in Shahbad Dairy, New Delhi.
84-year-old Vijayamala comes from an extremely remote village, but a visit to a screening camp organised by Sightsavers helped her to see again.
Father to seven children, Sanjesh Yadav lives with his wife, Chandrakala in Vidisha district, Madhya Pradesh and both suffer from cataract.
Sightsavers has been working in the Sundarbans for seven years and, until 2013, had supported the establishment of 2 eye hospitals and 2 vision centres.
In 2017 Madhabi Jana played the key role in organising an eye health camp by obtaining permission from the headmaster of the local school for the venue.
60 year old Pratima developed a cataract in her left eye, then her right, but a local health worker directed her to a Sightsavers-supported project.
Following a cataract surgery for his right eye in March 2015, 72 year old Madhav Sardar is back at what he does best: preparing parathas.
53 year old Kalpana and her husband Amal have experienced difficulties in life, and both have had cataract surgery due to a Sightsavers supported project.
