In a world where technology and globalization are rapidly advancing societies like never before, the significance of social service has become increasingly paramount. A recent report highlights that nearly 7% of the world’s population is living in poverty, struggling to meet their basic needs. In the face of such staggering numbers, social service encompasses a wide range of initiatives aimed at addressing societal challenges, fostering inclusivity, and uplifting marginalized communities. From providing access to healthcare and education to supporting disaster relief efforts and promoting sustainable development, social service plays a vital role in shaping a more equitable and harmonious world.
In this context, Mahavir International, Delhi (MID), has consistently championed the cause of uplifting underprivileged communities through various initiatives. One of their remarkable endeavors has become a ray of hope for those in need — the MID Anjuman Eye & Health Center.
The newly opened Eye & Health Center addresses the healthcare needs of the marginalized sections of society. By offering accessible and affordable eye care services, this center plays a pivotal role in restoring hope and transforming lives.
As famously quoted by Helen Keller, “Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much.” – through tireless efforts, the dedicated members of MID, in collaboration with the Gyankunj Foundation and the support of the KMG Foundation, have made it possible for individuals from underprivileged backgrounds to receive comprehensive eye checkups and surgeries.
The facility provides the expertise of a female physician, an optometrist, and a visiting ophthalmologist. Additionally, it offers women’s counseling services, conducts pathological tests, and distributes medicines.
The impact of the MID Anjuman Eye & Health Center paves the way to a brighter future for the indigent section. Till date, the center has made 230 OPD registrations, including health and eye checkups and nine free cataract surgeries.
Moreover, they have provided menstrual hygiene and breastfeeding awareness to around 107 girls and new mothers.
By providing thorough eye checkups and health awareness, the center aids in the early detection of various health-related conditions, ensuring timely intervention and treatment.
Furthermore, this initiative addresses the long-standing issue of limited access to healthcare for underprivileged communities. By bridging the gap between medical facilities and the marginalized, the center becomes a catalyst for change, ensuring that every individual, regardless of their socioeconomic background, has the right to quality healthcare.
Through this initiative, MID, along with Gyankunj Foundation & KMG Foundation, has given a ray of hope to those who are deprived of adequate healthcare facilities. By providing comprehensive eye care and health services to underprivileged communities, this initiative has not only transformed lives but also inspired others to join hands in making a positive difference.
In the words of Mahatma Gandhi, “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” The MID Anjuman Eye & Health Center is a beacon of selflessness and compassion, illuminating the path toward a healthier and better future.
