Pakistan is challenged with Swat Crisis which is being termed as largest humanitarian and displacement crisis since Independence. Among the health problems these victims are facing, are various eye diseases. Shortly after their establishment of the camps LRBT began running eye clinics at all locations.
Our medical teams visit the camps to examine eye patients, and then provide whatever services are needed: whether it is refraction including the provision of free glasses, medication or surgery. Surgical patients are transported to the nearby Akora Khattak hospital, Boarding and Lodging is provided for the period of their stay in the hospital, and then they are dropped back to their temporary homes All this, in the tradition of LRBT is free.
LRBT is serving as a candle of hope to these wretched people who are looking up to us for help and we all will be blessed if we guard their hope and keep it shining till we all see the light of a brighter day.
