Bangladesh has one of the highest percentages of blind people in relation to its population. There are approximately 750,000 adults and 40,000 children in Bangladesh who are blind due to cataract or other ocular diseases that could have easily been cured with timely and proper intervention. Approximately 80 percent of Bangladeshis who live in rural areas are almost completely deprived of eye-care services as they cannot afford the expense of treatment.
The Al-Zahoor Foundation UK will be running an Eye Screening Camp in March 2019, providing free eye examinations, diagnosis and treatment for the poor people in Moulvibazar, Bangladesh. The foundation has teamed up with the Moulvibazar BNSB Eye Hospital who has agreed to examine and treat the patients at a subsidised rate. Any cataract surgery that is required will also be subsidised.
Please donate whatever you can. You donation will help restore/improve a person's sight who otherwise would not have been able to afford treatment.
