‘Silver Innings’ celebrated its 2nd Foundation Day 2010: Free Eye & Cataract camp Report

On 10th April 2008 a new movement for Senior Citizens ‘Silver Innings’ was started. It has been 2 years of our honest and dedicated work for our Elderly.

To celebrate this historic occasion on 9th April 2010, eve of ‘Silver Innings’ Foundation day, we had organized Half a day FREE EYE & CATRACT CHECK UP/OPERATION CAMP for Senior Citizens (above 50 yrs) only. The camp was held from 10am to 1pm Near Tapobhoomi Mandir, opp. Post Office, Near Railway Station, Mira Road , Near Mumbai , India.

This camp was organized by Silver Innings Active Ageing Center in association with Help Age India & Bhaktivedanta Hospital – ‘Share Your Care’ project. Event Management was done by Silver Inning Foundation & Mr. Mahesh Machhi of Shree Bapa Sita Ram Seva Mandal, Mira – Bhayandar.

On camp day 120 Elderly (52 Elderly women and 68 Elderly Men) underwent Eye checkup and 20 people were diagnosed of cataract problem. Elderly with cataract will be operated Free of cost on 14th April 2010 at Bhaktivedanta Hospital, Mira Road. Around 70 Elderly were also assisted with Vision checkup.

10 Volunteers from Silver Inning Foundation, Help Age India, Bhaktivedanta Hospital and Shree Bapa Sita Ram Seva Mandal, Mira – Bhayandar made this programme successful.

It is to be noted that ‘Silver Innings’ 1st Foundation day was celebrated on 9th April 2009 by organizing Free Diabetes Camp for Senior Citizens at Koliwada , Dharavi Slums, Mumbai in association with The Family Welfare Agency, S L Raheja Hospital and Help Age India. Around 113 Senior Citizens benefited from this camp.

Many Thanks to Silver Inning Foundation, Help Age India , Bhaktivedanta Hospital and Shree Bapa Sita Ram Seva Mandal ,Mira – Bhayandar for their support.

We are looking forward for more such networking programme for welfare of our elderly.
