- 45 million are visually handicapped.
- 12 million are totally blind.
- 1/4th of the world’s blind live in our country.
The positive hope is 80% of these vision related problems are either preventable or curable. Keeing this is mind Ladies Circle India is launching project “Drishyam- Be The Light ” as The Presidents Theme Project for the year 2019-2020. Through this project we aim to offer complete eye care to all. Its a 3 point program which revolves around
Awareness – We work towards creating awareness on eye donations and busting the myth related to eye donations .
Curative – We aim at doing corrective cataract surgeries and peadiatric squint correction surgeries .
Rehabilitation – We weould be taking up all kinds of preojects and activities at Blind Schools such as distribution of brallie books , setting up of labs and other infratructure needs in blind schools , conducting events such as blind mans car rally , braille tambola ant many more.
As The President Theme Project we look at setting up TALKING BOOK LIBRARIES at schools for the visually challenged , Pan India.
A TALKING BOOK LIBRARY would require a Daisy Player , a Computer , Audio Podcast CDs and Braille Books.
“Eyes are the windows to this beautiful world”.
During the pleasant moments of our life we generally forget about those who aren’t as lucky as we are…..about those who are deprived of seeing the basic world around us.
Lets lend them a thought , and do our 2 bits to Be The Light in Their dark world.
