    This fundraiser will benefit

    Shibicharan and Chatra

    from Bagdogra, West Bengal

Case 1: Shibicharan Oraon, aged 70 yrs, came to Vision Eye Care Clinic during a free eye camp we had organised in and around Bagdogra (15/08/2018). He was diagnosed with a mature cataract in both eyes and was advised surgery.

He is basically an orphan and he supports himself by washing dishes in a restaurant near our hospital. He does not have any family members and lives in uninhabitable conditions. Alone he can never afford the cost of treatment and surgery. Shibicharan will soon go blind and will not be able to carry out his daily job of washing dishes which might render him jobless as well as homeless.. but with your support, he can be treated and operated as soon as possible.

Not knowing how you can pay for the surgery can be depressing and it has had adverse effects on his well being too, which is why your donation is doubly important... It will give him sight as well as hope.

Case 2: 70 years old Chatra Bahadur Bhujel, dumb since birth, lives in Bhotey Gaon, Dilaram. His estranged sister, the only living family member of his, lives in the same house but has no ties with him.

He worked in the tea garden as a labourer and has retired for the last 10 years.
With no source of income, he does some odd jobs for the villagers and survives on whatever little he manages to get every day.

We met Chatra Bahadur during our free eye camp in Dilaram ( 2/09/18). On eye examination, he had a mature cataract in both eyes and needed cataract surgery urgently.
We explained his condition to him and came to know that he has no financial means to undergo this surgery without which he will soon go blind and helpless. The little money he had saved post his retirement is almost over now and he might not have food on his plate if he can't do the odd jobs.

For many of us, a thousand rupees or two might just mean enjoying good lunch with friends while the same might mean a life free from blindness. For people like Shibacharan and Chatra, it will mean a livelihood... a warm bed and full stomach.

We, at Vision eye care, believe that we can make a difference by bringing one story at a time to everyone's notice. When we organise free camps, we come across many who desperately need help but have no financial means to do so.

 From now on, we will collect the data and share the stories and let those who want to help connect and make someone's life better.

We will use the funds to help these two patients get their sight back and we will keep you updated about the surgery, post surgery and recovery phase too.

We hope to get your support for Shibicharan, Chatra and many more like them to get their sight back. We would love to hear from you. If you have any questions or suggestions, please reach us directly via the "Contact Organizer" button below and, please tell your friends and family about our work and how you are helping
