Touching Souls International is a great organization that has done a lot to help disadvantaged individuals in Bangladesh. Their eye camps offer cataract surgeries with lens implant free of charge for those who would be blind without these services. They also provide surgery for people with cleft -lip and cleft -palletare. These are just two examples of the wonderful services that Touching Souls provides.

Touching Souls International, a New York based nonprofit organization is providing free services in various fields of disability service and support in Bangladesh including cataract surgeries, artificial limb, in and outpatient hospital services for paralyzed and disabled, cleft lip surgeries, regular free surgeries for various disorders, clubfoot surgery etc. I was amazed learning that the organization is carrying out all these activities for last 25+ years out of family contribution only. Bangladesh being a highly populated developing country many people cannot afford basic medical treatment of ailments which are easily treatable and curable and thus suffer from lifelong disability and become burden for family and society. As for example, as a tropical country, cataract related blindness is quite prevalent in Bangladesh but relatively very few people can afford a simple surgery which could render them functional and independent and improve the quality of their life. Many children are born in Bangladesh with cleft-lip and club-foot, while a basic surgery could repair the defect and offer a normal life to grow up for such children and change their life, in reality very few children get this opportunity because of poverty and lack of awareness. Because of accidents and various disease conditions many people in Bangladesh become disabled or paralyzed, but due to poverty and unavailability of services, especially in rural areas many underprivileged and disadvantaged people lose their independence and suffer whole life. I wish Touching Souls International all the best in all their future endeavors and achieve their goal

I strongly believe that, with the help of more donors, Touching Souls International would be able to broaden their support for disability to wider group of disadvantaged and underprivileged needy people of Bangladesh.
