Just a few of the pictures from our recent Yusef Abubaker Memorial Screening & Cataract Surgery 3-day event in Nepal (18-20 November).
Further details (including report) of this wonderful event carried out by Seva Foundation will be published soon.
The report and individual stories illustrate how important this camp was to the community. In the stories presented, three people were considered bilaterally blind from cataract. They only had the ability to perceive light or movement of a hand in front of their face. That means they couldn’t see things further away, at all.
In all 24 surgeries took place. There were some individuals who required surgery but due to hypertension being diagnosed during screening, surgery couldn’t be performed at this time.
The stories are beautiful examples of how dramatically these lives, and the lives of their families, will be changed forever.
Initial Statement from Seva:
‘Seva is grateful for the support of the Yusef Abubaker Memorial Trust and the generous gift that will support the people in the Pachathar district in Eastern Nepal to receive life-changing eye care services. With their vision restored, these individuals will return to living independent lives, contributing to the well-being of their families and communities. Their lives will be changed forever. Thank you for your compassion and commitment to making the world a better place for all.’
