Saudi eye surgeons help 1,000 Sri Lankans regain sight

COLOMBO: A Saudi eye surgeon team is helping 1,000 people in Sri Lanka regain sight with interventions facilitated by the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center.

KSrelief’s Saudi Noor Volunteer Program to Combat Blindness started in the city of Kattankudy on Sri Lanka’s eastern coast on May 5 and will run through next week.

“This is a special program to combat blindness among patients who are suffering from a cataract,” M.S.M. Thassim, director general of KSrelief’s local partner, the Association of Muslim Youth of Sailan, told Arab News.
