Fatema dreaming of a better future after restoring eyesight

Fatema Begum, 90, is an elderly woman who lives in Bodorganj, Rangpur. Her husband passed away many years ago. She is a poor woman. There is no one to look after her.

She suffered from a cataract in her right eye for the last few years. She said, “I felt giddy and could not get up from the bed. I could not see things even from a little distance and objects appeared blurred like fog.”

On July 30, 2023, Eye Care Program-MSS organized a free eye camp at Bodorganj in collaboration with Rangpur Eye Hospital. In that camp, she was diagnosed with a cataract in her right eye. That day she was taken to the Rangpur Eye Hospital by the organization’s transport with other cataract patients. Her cataract surgery was done free of cost.

After successful Cataract surgery, Fatema can now see things clearly. She is back to her normal life. She thanked her sponsor and ECP for restoring his eyesight.
