Fatik can now provide for his family again.
As a farmer, sight is everything for Fatik Gayen. A father of three in India, when Fatik's vision deteriorated, his life was put at standstill. It affected his income, ability to work, and his family life.
He tried to access care, but he could not afford it. “I cannot see clearly. Once, I went to the local doctor who advised me for a cataract operation, but I have no money for it.” he devastatingly shared.
Upon hearing about an Outreach Eye Camp at our partner Sundarban Eye Hospital, Fatik was provided with transportation to and from the hospital and also received a cataract surgery free of cost, through your generosity.
We asked Fatik, how will your life change now that you can see? “Now I have started all activities. After one month, I have started a kitchen garden, farming, cultivating the field, operating machine vans, and poultry rearing. Gradually the income of my family has increased." His life didn't just change – it transformed.
Fatik – and Seva – are most grateful to you. “I am grateful to the Eye Hospital of SSDC and the Seva Foundation for free cataract operation, and the transportation for before and after the operation."
