A free eye camp was organized on June 3, 2011 at DCI’s clinic in the Kallayanpur Porabari Slum. This camp was a joint initiative of DCI’s Health for Underprivileged and Blindness Prevention programs. The screened cataract patients will be provided surgeries free of cost. A simple surgery like this can prevent blindness if treatment is provided in time.
Dr. Nina Hoque, DCI Director, was Chief Guest on the occasion and inaugurated the eye camp. DCI’s partner organization Rights and Sight for Children implemented the program with sponsorship and direction from DCI.
