CHILDREN CARE AND LITERACY SOCIETY organized eye-screening program in association with their esteemed client Mr. Prabhat Jain. The program held in three different stages. A total of 529 children were screened during the camp.
The program was of great help to the community as all the screened children are living below poverty line. The fact that all the beneficiaries were out of school children – some drop outs and some never been to any formal school, makes the entire effort even more important.
During the camp 30 children were identified with some problem and were referred to the hospital by the team of doctors.
Priya, a 13 years old girl from nearby area had some problem in her eyes since childhood. Her parents were ignoring her problems. She comes to our NGO regularly and always tells that she cannot read properly. We contacted her parents and requested them to take her to some hospital but they ignored. When we told her that a team of doctors is coming to her school to check her eyes she was really thrilled. She was very excited in the hope that her problem will be rectified soon and she could continue her studies. Priya is one of the 30 cases referred to the hospital by the team of doctors.
