Mohammad Juman, a 40 year old farmer comes from Badin. The only son of his parents and bread earner for the family, Juman is burdened with responsibilities. His father passed away a couple of years ago and since then he has been taking care of his mother, two unmarried sisters, his wife and three children.
He wanted to graduate and join the education department but lack of resources caused him to drop out of school after Intermediate. He got a job working on the fields and earns Rs. 400 a day. Juman is a responsible and caring man, his sisters hate being a burden on him and work as maids in wealthier homes to help support the household expenses.
One day when he was working in the fields while ploughing and cutting the crop, a stray neem tree’s stick struck his left eye. He was in extreme pain and rushed home. His wife gave him some home remedies and eventually the pain went away. After a couple of weeks Juman felt that his vision was blurry and it kept getting worse. Eventually he was unable to see at all from his left eye and had no choice but to sit at home. As days passed he lost all hope of his eye getting better.
His cousin was visiting one day and after hearing about his eye problems, he told Juman about LRBT Tando Bago and took him there for a checkup. Juman had a cataract in his left eye and would require surgery. Juman was relieved beyond words when he heard that his treatment would be free.
At his checkup when the bandage came off he said, “LRBT is a miracle for me, I never thought I would see again. My prayers and good wishes are with LRBT and its donors.”
