Hi, my name is VAANI VERMA and I am in Grade 12 at the Manav Rachna International School, Sector 14, Faridabad.
A few days ago, our school had a program where the team from Fueladream.com told us about how crowdfunding works. I found it very interesting. They also told us that we could help raise funds for elderly people who urgently need to undergo cataract surgeries.
Me and my classmates were shocked to learn that there are over 12 mn people who are impacted by this in India. Without a surgery they will go blind. This would make their life and the lives of their immediate family very difficult.
I also used to think that a cataract surgery would cost between 30000 to 60000 INR. We were all surprised and shocked that it can be done at just INR 1500 thanks to the NGO – Venu Eye Hospital in Delhi. The fact that a contribution of just Rs 1500 can make a difference to the life of someone and give them back their sight made me realize that I must do something to help.
Please support my campaign and let us together bring light into the lives of these people. Keep funding this till the last date. While my goal is INR 15000, I would like to raise much more than that and help more elderly people see again.
INR 1500 is what you and I would spend if we went out on a weekend to a theatre to watch a movie and have popcorn and lunch with our families. That amount is all it takes to give sight to one person and change their life and the life of their families.
Please fund this campaign. You can also share it on social media as that will be a big help.
