KSrelief concludes Saudi Volunteer Program for blindness in Dhaka schools

Dhaka, March 27, 2024, On Tuesday, the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) successfully concluded the Saudi Volunteer Program to Combat Blindness and associated diseases among school students in Dhaka, Bangladesh. This initiative was carried out in collaboration with the World Sight Foundation.

The dedicated volunteer medical team from KSrelief conducted thorough eye examinations for a total of 30,195 male and female students across 52 schools in Bangladesh. The primary objective was to ensure optimal eye health among these students and provide essential eye care services. Additionally, the team focused on raising awareness about various eye diseases prevalent among school-age children.

As part of the program, KSrelief's medical experts conducted three workshops aimed at educating 161 teachers on the fundamentals of early detection of visual impairments in students. This training was pivotal in empowering educators to recognize potential eye health issues among their students at an early stage.

Furthermore, the program facilitated the referral of 1,193 students to hospitals where they could receive specialized medical services tailored to their individual needs.

The implementation of this comprehensive program underscores the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's commitment to voluntary medical projects aimed at combating vision impairment and its root causes. KSrelief's initiatives extend beyond national borders, demonstrating Saudi Arabia's dedication to addressing global health challenges and supporting vulnerable populations worldwide.
