ASSISTANCE FOR BLIND CHILDREN DHAKA, BANGLADESH

During the late 1970s, a growing problem with bureaucratic red tape was making it difficult for children in Bangladesh to receive medical attention. Assistance for Blind Children (ABC) was created specifically to assist Bangladeshi children under the age of 15.

In 1982, Operation Eyesight began assisting ABC with its goal of preventing blindness and restoring sight. It also assisted with rehabilitation for blind children, who are taught to generate their own income and manage themselves, encouraging them to become more independent and restoring their sense of dignity.
