“My reason for going through Sightsavers is that I was born without an eye. At the age of 3, I underwent surgery and since then I have one prosthetic eye. I consider myself to be lucky to have vision in at least one of my eyes. I realise the importance and value of vision and the fact that Sightsavers works towards preventing and curing blindness is a project close to my heart. This is what made me decide to select Sightsavers for my participation in the Standard Chartered Mumbai Marathon 2017.”
