Success Story

Your Support Can Help People Like The Malik Family

The Malik family, from West Bengal, knows this firsthand. Four generations of one family were born with congenital cataracts. Work, school, and everyday life for the entire family was shrouded in a blur.

Sarama, 62, was born with congenital cataracts-a genetic condition. Like her mother and siblings, she could barely see. She’s had a series of accidents; once, while walking in the field, she held up a snake thinking it was a dried coconut leaf. Sarama’s two sons and two grandsons also lived with cataracts.
