Sewa Vibhag: 3000 families sign the family eye donation pledge #sewabharati

“Fantastic” that was the seal of approval stamped by Dr. S S Badrinath, the eye surgeon of world renown and Chief of Sankara Nethralaya, Chennai. He was referring to a unique way of obtaining eye donation pledges in thousands by the volunteers of Sewa vibhag, Chennai. Over 3000 families were talked into signing the family eye donation pledge. A thousand pledges were handed over to Sankara Nethralaya eye bank at a function ‘1000 Eye Donors Families’ Meet’ organized by ‘Swami Vivekananda 150th year Birthday Celebration Committee’ on November 23 at Meenakshi College
 for Women in Chennai.

Sri Sukas Rao All India Seva Pramuk of RSS and Sri Sundara Lakshmanan, All India Organising Secretary of Rashtriya Seva Bharati graced the occasion and patted the work by the Chennai team, especially in roping in over 30 organizations in this endeavor. Dr. Lakshmi, Secretary of Meenakshi College congratulated the RSS team for this very important contribution to the society.  Swami Satyaprabananda Ji of Ramakrishna Order blessed the families which have signed the pledges. (Dr. Badrinath fondly remembered Late RSS Pracharak Sri Shivaram Joglekar whose pioneering work of involving families in eye donation pledge helped greatly to fight against blindness).
