Noor Dubai, the UAE-based charity initiative focused on preventing and treating low vision and curable forms of blindness, today announced that it had successfully organized a cataract camp in one the world’s poorest and most remote areas. Noor Dubai is the first humanitarian initiative to provide large-scale cataract treatment in Maradi, the third largest city in the West African country of Niger.
His Excellency Qadhi Saeed Al Murooshid, CEO of Noor Dubai and Director General of the Dubai Health Authority, said: “Noor Dubai cataract camp, which is organized in collaboration with Al Basar International Organization in Maradi, attracted thousands of patients who received medication, surgery and eyeglasses. The initiative has helped many critical cases and returned the gift of sight to people who had resigned themselves to a life of blindness.â€
HE Mr. Al Murooshid highlighted the case of 7-year-old Khadija, who had lost her eyesight to cataracts two years ago and was completely dependent on her desperately poor family, unable to attend school. The Noor Dubai team performed successful surgery on her left eye. One of five children, Khadija is now looking forward to rejoining her friends in class and one day supporting her family.
