(Church of North India)

Durgapur is a well-known industrial town in West Bengal. A side effect of industrialization is a rise in pollution levels. Therefore, the town’s populace suffers from a variety of diseases as a result of relatively high pollution levels.

When it comes to the eyes, air pollution is a primary source of itchiness, dry eyes, red eyes, allergies and tearing. The fierce UV rays of the sun are another major cause of eye damage/disease. Apart from these two environmental factors, we also have to factor in issues of bad nutrition, unhygienic homes, and other related issues as our primary target group is impoverished and needy.

With all these issues working against them, many of the poor compound their problems by paying a visit to the village wise man for a cure or go to the pharmacy and buy what is recommended by the shopkeeper. This faulty treatment along with environmental factors leads to eventual blindness for diseases that have cures! Seeing this, the Diocese felt a strong urge to contribute and help, which is how Good Shepherd Eye Clinic and Hospital came to be.
