Aban's generosity restores sight of two blind persons

Great humanitarian legacy of gifting human organs by deceased persons which was initiated in recent weeks by iconic late Abdul Sattar Edhi has been enthusiastically received in the society as more people have come forward to take active part in the noble cause.

Ms. Aban was known in the city as an active social worker who in her life time made outstanding contribution in the world of social work. She was actively involved with a number of Charitable organizations and held offices of multiple organizations engaged in the humanitarian activities. Her great passion in life was rehabilitation of children suffering with cerebral palsy where she devoted her life with great zeal. Her decision to donate her pair of eyes to needy persons after her death was again another act where she wanted to leave a noble legacy for doing something for those who were in need.

Ms. Aban Jamall who passed away a few days ago also listed herself in the hall of fame by donating her pair of eyes for two blind men. The ophthalmological team of SIUT on coming to know about the wish of late Ms Aban rushed their team and retrieved the cornea in order to graft them into two blind men waiting since long to receive any such medical redressal.

Surgery was performed last week by SIUT team of eye surgeons led by Dr Akhtar Jamal. They grafted corneas in the eyes of Mohammad Farooq and Ali Nawaz the two men without vision.

Recipient Farooq a 40 year old man doing odd jobs lost his vision in early childhood and continued to suffer with different eye related complication during major part of his life. Acute financial constraints always restricted his desires to go for an expensive medical surgery. Forty two year old Nawaz, an operator by profession was another person who received eye donation. Nawaz suffered decreased vision in his both eyes from childhood. He was on the waitlist for corneal transplant.

Ms Aban, mother of six children who also passed away earlier this week proved to be a messiah as her gifted corneas infused a new life in the life of two persons.
