Eyesight restored to 108 Patients in Mullaithivu on 15/06/14

A cataract surgery camp, organised by Assist RR with the support of Vision 2020 and sponsored by Enlightenment Circle, an arm of Saiva Munnetta Sangam, a registered charity in the UK, was completed on 15 June 2014. Vision 2020 confirmed that they have restored eyesight to 108 patients at this camp. Dr Dias Jayasiri, the eye surgeon, who is now attached to Matara hospital, volunteered again to perform these surgeries single handed. We are pleased to inform that Dr Dias has now assisted nearly 500 patients to gain vision in the North and East through Assist RR. Vision 2020 has promised to carry out another two camps: one in Mannar; another in Mullaithivu within a few months. Assist RR would like to thank Enlightenment Circle for their support and funds to the camp in Mullaithivu and Vision 2020 for organising this camp to help the vulnerable in the North. In particular, we would like to thank Dr Dias for his selfless service to the needy in the East and North.  His willingness to travel from Matara to the North shows his dedication to help the needy.
