'My Son got Back his Sight after Nine Years”
Ragini Vijay, Kachi, Housewife, Maharashtra
- Nine years ago Ragini’s son lost his sight because gutka powder went into his eyes. Ever since she has been running from pillar to post to get medical help and restore his eyesight. “Nobody helped me…I cried for help but nobody came forward…...then I learnt about Reliance Foundation’s hospital…the people here were very kind…...my son got back his sight after nine years,” says an emotional Ragini.
- Her son is one of the thousands of visually challenged persons who have got back their vision because of Reliance Drishti’s cornea transplant programme. Reliance Drishti sponsored 12,839 corneal transplants in 10 years….a stunning number considering that only about 2100 transplants are done in Maharashtra annually
