Jatin a one and a half year old baby could not see the beautiful world around him….He was visually impaired due to congenital cataract in both eyes. He had lost both his parents and was living with his grandmother and aunt who could not afford a cataract surgery. With the help of our paid patient who willingly volunteered to sponsor the cost of surgery for Jatin.
Today Jatin has been operated with a Intra ocular lens implant in both his eyes and smiles brilliantly to all the friendly faces.
Many medical as well as non medical volunteers became co-travellers in this noble journey of lighting up the lives of blind people.
