IAPB would like to welcome two new Group C members to our coalition – Dr. K. Zaman BNSB Eye Hospital and Deep Eye Care Foundation (DECF) both work in the South East Asia Region in Bangladesh.
Dr. K. Zaman BNSB Eye Hospital is a voluntary, non-governmental and no-profit organisation which started its journey in 1982, believing in the oaths of preventing and curing blindness, and rehabilitating the incurable blind people of the country. The journey of BNSB is still on the run.
Deep Eye Care Foundation (DECF) commenced its strenuous journey on 9th October, 2008 at Akkelpur, Darshona, Rangpur, Bangladesh, as a non-profitable, non-governmental, community based organisation. Since its inception, it has always been a matter of special emphasis for them to reach the unreached people where the impact of needless avoidable blindness is most damaging. It has been providing services for Cataract, Refraction, Paediatric Ophthalmology, Orbit & Oculoplasty, Vitreo Retina, Glaucoma, Low vision, Biomedical & Training facilities for Human Resource development. The founder of DECF Dr Khairul Islam has been an Eye Health Hero in 2016 and also attended IAPB’s 10GA in Durban, South Africa.
