Help Sona get her vision back!
Sona Devi is a widow and lives on the breadline in Patna’s Danapur district with her teenage, school-going son. They are so poor, the local elder (Mukia), who provides meals to disadvantaged individuals, also feeds them. To add to her woes, Sona’s condition has left her visually impaired and only urgent treatment and a high-risk surgery can reverse the damage and prevent permanent blindness.THE PLAN
Three consultations at different eye hospitals have been conducted as high sugar levels makes the operation dangerous. Despite that Dhristipunj Netralaya is confident of treating Sona’s condition. Presently her blood sugar levels are under control so once the funds are raised the doctors will start the treatment with an injection (₹6,000) and perform surgery after 3-4 days. Costs of tests and medicine are ₹1,500 and cost of surgery is ₹36,500.
