A number of people are approaching the Foroyaa Office to indicate that if they do not have money to pay for eye operation at the right time, they would become blind. This is why Foroyaa deems it necessary to ring the alarm bell so that all those who would give charity to a blind person as a sign of displaying empathy would also display willingness to contribute their quota to save sight.
The problem of cataract is a growing one and poverty is underpinning early detection and timely attention. Hence there is need for a social response to give free medical care to those who cannot afford it.
Foroyaa will give free publicity to any government Department, Private or Public enterprise, NGO or individual who would volunteer to provide assistance to these people who are about to be sentenced to blindness by poverty. The best form of charity is to prevent disability and eradicate poverty.
