As the Covid pandemic death toll was staggering, crematorium workers bore the burden of the crisis, more than anyone else and had to work round the clock. When relatives and friends were unable and unwilling to participate, these brave souls carried on their work with courage and determination. Aravind’s postgraduate residents in association with the Rotary Club of Madurai Midtown organised a programme to felicitate them for their noble service.

Vision centres located in rural and suburban areas play a significant role in creating eye care awareness in the community. They regularly organise free eye screening programmes for different age-groups and most of these programmes receive great response.

Aravind centres observed Retinoblastoma Awareness Week in a splendid way. It was truly gratifying to see the little survivors enjoying the event with their family members.
