14th August 2013 - A report from Manju Verma and Rajat Bhaskar

The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed." 
---- Albert Einstein

It is very often said that eyes are the windows to our soul. But unfortunate are those who cannot see. And blessed are we who have this wonderful gift of nature. Realizing this fact, 40 Bronze and Silver Award participants of Cambridge International School, Phagwara organized an Eye Donation Awareness and a free eye check-up camp within the campus under the guidance of Principal Jorawar Singh. This endeavour was supported by Punarjot Eye Hospital, Ludhiana under the expert guidance of Dr. Ramesh and Ashok Mehra of Project Saanjh.

The entire camp was organized in the school with the help of Award participants, right from registrations, traffic management, projector operating, helping in distribution of water and free snacks for patients, housekeeping, patient ushering, managing and sorting dark room area team. The participation on behalf of the school staff was overwhelming.
The Award aspirants worked relentlessly from morning till evening to support the cause. The camp was attended by 1000 people from the town and nearby areas. This dignified cause was further supported by 48 people who pledged to donate their eyes to the hospital. The students also received certificates and a medal as a token of appreciation on behalf of Punarjot Eye Hospital.

It was a true learning experience for the students which motivated them to redirect their thoughts toward those less fortunate than themselves.  click for more pictures
