I help Touching Souls International in organizing Eye Camps with main intention to find out elderly people who are visually disabled for cataract. Touching Souls International sponsors the expenses required for cataract surgery. The very poor segment of the society in a least developed country like Bangladesh (where there is no Social Security safety net) benefits a lot from the service sponsored by Touching Souls International. Every month a Eye camp is sponsored by TSI at different parts of the country, preferably a bit remote places are choosen as service providing sites. From 800 to 1200 people visit these Eye camps. Almost 300 eye patients receive prescription and almost 85% of the prescribed eye medicines. Near about 100 visually impaired people receive eye-glasses totally free. In a camp usually 40 to 60 patients are selected for cataract surgery. The unique arrangement by TSI is that besided free surgery these poor patients receive free transportation to and fro, and also their food expenses from the next 2 days at the hospital are beared by TSI. 3 weeks after the surgery the patients also receive a free follow-up by the same doctors, in their own household vicinity. What more someone can ask from a philanthropic organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

While for few years for the purpose of higher study I was in USA. While my stay at USA, I enjoyed being a volunteer in few "United Way" activities. Returning to Bangladesh, being a Pharmacist I was always eager to help people specially on medical ground. A cataract surgery can again bring an elderly person back to a economically productive life, thus bringing in dignity for him/herself and also for his/her family. The person is no more a burden to the family or the community as a whole.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Touching Souls International should be recipient for different match making donor programs. This will ensure expansion of TSI's different Health and relevant disability activities. And also ensure the volunteers here in Bangladesh, who are eager to spare time for volunteer activity (but may not afford such activities on their own personal monetary expenses).

I live in New York,USA for last 34 years,my heart is with me but my soul stays in Bangladesh.Thanks to the Almighty, that I am doing very good,and try to do something for the people I left behind ,whose contribution is is to be credited for my establishment and made possible to keep me where I am now. When I see and hear that some one is doing something good for my Bangladesh I pray for them. What could be a better gift than helping to a blind person to see his/her loved ones around,Give a smile to one who could not open his mouth for cleft palate or lips, Extending financial help to continue the most wanted education one deserves.I could only admire and pray for them who can do all these things made possible. TSI is one of those organization that can be admired and appreciated. I congratulate all behind this great endeavour and also looking forward to see some more organizations or individuals come to do the same or join them .I believe it makes a big building from a small brick we should not ever forget our roots, and always should nurture it as much as you can. Looking forward for more efforts and more ideas to bring smile and touch of happiness for those who are so unfortunate. TSI, you are doing a great job. May Allah bless you all.
