‘Yaad-E-Murshid’ free eye camps are a perfect depiction of selfless service. Service of the needy is equal to the service of the Almighty. These camps are organized in the holy remembrance of Revered Param Pita Shah Satnam Singh Ji Maharaj and span over four days from the 12th to the 15th of December. It extends services to everyone without any discrimination.
Just as in earlier years, in these four days periods, several needy patients got hope of life. They regained their eyesight which was a far-fetched dream for many of them. Many needy make a compromise with their condition when they don’t have the funds and sources to get the treatment. Organized in the pious remembrance of Param Pita Shah Satnam Singh Ji Maharaj, this camp was fully dedicated to humanity.
With the vision to remove eye ailments of people at large, the free eye camp is serving a big purpose of helping people in regaining their eyesight. This welfare initiative is surely illuminating millions of lives and giving them a reason to live again. Thousands of patients got benefitted from the camp and many got free eye surgeries too. Total registrations in 2022 were:
Total Registrations: 10,597
A total of 269 surgeries have been performed so far, out of which, 209 are cataract surgeries and 60 are for glaucoma. 234 patients have been discharged after proper after-care services and care.
Thousands of Patients- High-Budget Project but Services for free!
For just a simple checkup, the patient has to empty his/her pocket. Eye care services and even every sort of health checkup & treatments are of the highest cost these days. In such an era, providing free services from checkups, and screening to surgery is not a simple thing. It’s a project of lakhs but all services are provided without any cost or without charging a single penny.
Besides arranging for not just eye checkups, but for surgeries, pre-operation, post-operation care services, arrangement of paramedic staff, medicines, high-cost equipment, food, accommodation, living arrangements until the patient is discharged after the operation and many other services are compiled in one eye camp. It turns into a high-budget project but each 7 every service is provided free of cost.
Moreover, conducting, managing, and successfully wrapping up mega camps is not as easy as it seems. Managing everything from the ground level demands more dedication & commitment and Dera Sacha Sauda volunteers nailed it! Their support in managing every single task from the roots to the professional level, everything was so well-planned and well-organized.
Determined efforts of Super-Specialist Eye Care Doctors, Surgeons, and Para Medic Staff!
Sparing time for needy ones is not easy for a common man and when it comes to doctors then we all know that their tight schedule doesn’t allow them at all. Amid that, giving their services consistently to needy patients without any selfish motive is something unusual in this world. However, it‘s commonly witnessed in Dera Sacha Sauda.
All the super-specialist doctors from different vicinities reached here to give their services. They continually provided counseling and the best-ever eye care services to patients reached from different locations. The surgeries have been performed at Shah Satnam Ji Specialty Hospital, Sirsa, and will continue till all the shortlisted patients get the required treatment. The hospital is equipped with top-notch modern technological equipment for better treatment and outcomes. Many surgeries on cataracts have been already performed so far that relived the patients from elongating problems of eyes.
The ophthalmologists and eye surgeons provided premium-level services. Those who were in need of consultation were provided free guidance and counseling. The paramedical staff provided services day & night without any frustration or fatigue. Their spirit to provide selfless services was ineffable.
Volunteering in Humanitarianism- The Best Ever Initiative!
Volunteering is common but taking initiative to keep humanity alive with own efforts is quite rare in this self-centric world. However, exceptions exist. The mega free eye camp at Dera Sacha Sauda exemplified the selfless spirit of Dera Sacha Sauda volunteers. The patients were startled that without any relation or acquaintance the volunteers were so concerned about their health.
From food requirements to accommodation, transportation, and overall treatment, the volunteers took care of every single need of the patients. Many of them got emotional about getting such care and hospitality that they never received in their homes. They were continually thanking Saint Dr. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan for introducing this selfless world to them via these volunteers & their services.
Memorable and Full of Blessedness- ‘Yaad-E-Murshid’ Free Eye Camp!
The 31st Yaad-E-Murshid free eye camp was a memorable one. Over 10,000 patients got registered for eye care services. After registration, every patient has gone through a vision test, and eye screening in which specialist doctors properly checked the eyes and advised the patients for better vision and care. Selected patients, based on medical eligibility, are then transported to Shah Satnam ji Super specialty hospital, Sirsa, where they undergo cataract removal and receive new state-of-the-art lenses. All surgeries are provided by a team of eye surgeons from all over Indian Medical Institutions working hand in hand with a local team of surgeons of the Hospital, all of whom volunteer their time and skills for this noble cause. Patients benefit from post-operative checkups and treatment for several weeks following the operation, so they can receive maximum benefit from the surgery. The volunteers accompany the patients and take care of them till they were discharged and returned to their homes.
All in all, the doctors, volunteers, paramedical staff, and everyone who reached to extend premium eye care services, presented exceptional dedication for the entire mankind. We bow down to Saint Dr. MSG Insan for not just guiding but imbuing each one of them to such a core level that they treated every patient as God and served them just as they are worshiping & serving God.
Such paragons are rare to witness in today’s world. We thank and acknowledge Guruji today & forever!
