In Pakistan, almost 1.7 million people suffer from blindness, causing an annual loss of productivity of Rs.69 billion to the nation's GDP. Not to forget another 17 million who have impaired vision. Like Sajida's family, most of the afflicted people are poor with little or no means to survive leave aside support.
Although 85% blindness is curable, a vast majority simply can't afford the treatment due sheer poverty.
