First eye donation was made in Kukudakhandi block of Ganjam district on Wednesday. It was the 133rd eye donation motivated by Friends Helping Club of Berhampur. Satya Sai Seva Samiti also played a major role in motivating the rural family from Balipada village to donate eyes of P. Varalu (87), who passed away on Wednesday. A team from ophthalmology department of MKCG Medical College, led by its HoD B. Nageswar Subudhi, rushed to the village to collect the corneas.
Dr. Subushi said the incident would surely motivate more eye donations from the rural areas.
