The Aziznagar village students around 45 of grade 10 and with age above 15 were also brought for the Eye-camp—motivated and informed by the KMRF-team and got tested for their vision. Also present were some students who have some vision problems.

The advised / diagnosed cases for cataract surgery will be taken to Swarup Eye Centre, Hyderabad,  after fixing up a date with them for the surgery.

!9 adults /villagers have given their consent to undergo the surgery and will be taken on the given date by them. It will be a day’s procedure. The patients admitted will be provided with some light food before surgery.

They also need to test for HIV, HbsAg and RBS before they admitted for surgery. Pathlab will be doing the testing and reporting the findings to KMRF as we have been collaborating with them for the past 3-years for the “DIABETES CARE PROJECT” that is currently running in 4 –villages.

The villagers with vision problem around 40 of them will be supplied with free spectacles on    6th, December, 2019 (FRIDAY) personally by the NGO- Ms, Munmun Gneriwal.

The cases opted for surgery and willing to take it will be taken to Swarup Eye Centre after 11th of December, 2019. They will be staying at the Eye Centre from 9am to 5 pm until the procedure gets over.

They will be transported to and back home by KMRF.

It will not be an exaggeration  mentioning that KMRF—team took a task of convincing each       and every  advised case for cataract to take up the surgery as most of them did not have people to go with them or to give any moral support. As they being senior citizens and aged they required  persistent motivation for encouragement and make them feel easy without any fear or hesitation.

The report / status on surgery will be updated.

It was fun for both the school students and students from grade -1 were asked to do hand-print on the wall above the painted tree-trunk that looked like branches of hands sticking out of the tree-trunk. They were so excited to participate.

It has been planned as a part of Children’s Day Celebrations on the 14th November, 2019. There were 2-group of SIS-volunteers to take care of Murals-painting and children’s day celebrations. They entertained the whole school with a quiz &  cultural program.
