Eye Care for the Poor

Eye care for the poor

In most third world countries, most eye care facilities are based in major towns and cities, despite the fact that most of the population live in rural areas. In rural areas, there is a lack of health services and they very rarely have the capacity, skills or equipment to diagnose or treat eye health issues. Consequently, people living in rural areas must travel long distances to access eye care services. Most people are unable to travel to get help – many simply can’t afford the expense. Traditional women are particularly disadvantaged as they are not expected to travel alone.

Save the eyesight of the poor & needy

Not all cases of blindness are fatal. Most cases of blindness are treatable or avoidable. In third world countries, many people do not get eye care due to their inability to access eye care services, lack of trained eye care personnel, and inadequate equipment to treat the people.

Unfortunately, in many third world countries, hundreds of people go blind every day, often from preventable causes like cataract. People in Western countries have ready access to cataract surgery, but in third world countries, many people don’t.

With your help, Dabbagh Welfare Trust can help restore the eyesight of the poor – for free.

Why spend on the poor & the needy?

They ask you (O Muhammad) what they should spend in charity. Say: ‘Whatever you spend with a good heart, give it to parents, relatives, orphans, the helpless, and travellers in need. Whatever good you do, God is aware of it.”(al-Qur’an 2:195)

Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him) narrated that The Prophet Muhammad (sallalahu alaiyhi wasalam) said, that Allah said, ‘O son of Adam! Spend, and I shall spend on you.” (al-Bukhari)
