CEO’s Note
Dear Friends,
Mission for Vision is well into 2016-17 with the first quarter just behind us. I am happy to inform you that work is progressing as planned with a number of strategic initiatives underway.

I am also happy to inform you that papers submitted by MFV's team members for the 10th IAPB General Assembly have been accepted for presentation. At least three papers will be presented by our team at the General Assembly to be held in Durban, South Africa from 27th to 30th October 2016.
Community Impact Assessment
In this quarter, we surveyed over 2000 eyes. 87% of the eyes assessed, post-surgery, have visual acuity in the good (6/6 – 6/18) category. 59% of the people treated were women which is an encouraging sign for us, at MFV, as women usually tend to be the last to avail of eye care services in a family.
Inspiring Stories Of Transformation
Eswarappa, 78, a potter by profession, lost his ability to shape clay pots due to poor vision, hampering his livelihood. When SECI, Shimoga, a MFV partner, stepped in and treated the cataract in his eye he could return to work and resume his life.
Bishnu Das runs a tea stall in Kolkata supporting himself and his wife. Cataracts in both eyes caused severe mental and physical stress on him. Community Health Workers from MFV convinced him to undergo surgery helping him get back on his feet again.
Managing her small landholding & the few cattle she had, became a problem for Hausabai, when she developed cataracts in both eyes. Screening at an outreach camp and surgery at a MFV partner hospital restored her sight and Hausabai's independence too.
