4-February-2019, Koregaon Park (Pune): The Don Bosco Development Society organized an Eye Check-up camp in collaboration with Bharati Eye Hospital, Pune. The programme was held under the aegis of ‘women empowerment project’ supported by Manos Unidas, Spain. During the camp 18 patients were diagnosed to be suffering from Cataract. These patients were referred to Bharati Eye Hospital for Cataract operation.

18 patients were admitted on 31-January-2019. Out of these 5 couldn’t be operated as they had high sugar levels and also their blood pressure was not normal. Other 13 patients underwent successful Cataract surgery and were discharged on 4-February-2019. Fr. Vincent (In-Charge) and Fr. Richard (Administrator) congratulated the patients wished good health and speedy recovery for them. Entire DBDS staff coordinated and followed up the entire process with the hospital and the families of the patients.
