In Bangladesh more than 750,000 people are blind among 30+ populations, of which 80% are due to cataract. According to official estimate, approximately 120,000 cataract patients are added every year. Currently, there are about 12,000 women and children in Bangladesh, suffering from cataract, among which are cases where early treatment can cure it through medication. Hence, we have planned to perform free cataract surgery for 50 such underprivileged patients in Jashore and in doing so, enable their basic need of proper eyesight.
