“I work at the clinic in the mornings and I make spectacles for people with eye problems,” Fatema explains, “in the afternoon, I go to the ﬁeld and I talk to people about the problems they face. We also do mobile clinics.
People commonly have problems with vision and general health, especially with children. People in this area are not solvent and we provide free or low cost services. These are ‘ﬂoating’ people. Some have jobs, some not. They need ﬁxed jobs and training so they can become more self-reliant.”
Fatema is very passionate about her job: “I like my job very much. I feel I can contribute to poor people – it’s God’s way of helping, through me.”
Arpan did his training in Mymensing. He explains that: “most people come with vision problems – distance vision or near vision. Sometimes people come with headache and sometimes people have cataracts. The main diﬃculties are that people have little money and they ﬁnd it hard to understand the condition they have.”
He is very dedicated to his job: “I really like my job. It can be very busy and I like that. My dream was to be in a noble profession to give service to people.”
