ability to see clearly is a precious ability but one that many people lose as
time passes. In the village we visited, there were people suffering from issues
such as long/short-sightedness, and cataracts. A group of doctors was present
to check the eye-sight and diagnose the problems. Based on that, the villagers
were given spectacles and medicines free of cost.
volunteers played their part in organizing the camp. They made sure that
despite the lengthening queues, the process ran smoothly and justly. They made
sure they proved themselves indispensable.
450 men, women and children came to the camp with hopes of better vision and
were treated on the spot while some were referred to Al-Shifa Trust clinic in
Islamabad and Rawalpindi.
