These sisters had cataract & so they were considered as blind. Our doctors at Raichur Mega Cataract surgery camp on 3rd December 2013 conducted surgery. They are more than 20 years & could not see the light. After surgery they have regained eyesight. We have to congratulate ourselves for this achievement. This camp was organised by Lions Club of Raichur. It was well organised & we thank them for all the arrangement that made our stay comfortable.
