The magnitude of blindness in Bihar always meant that our outreach staff would not be able to reach every village. Two of our senior employees devised and implemented a plan called PROTECTORS OF SIGHT (PoS), whereby our satisfied patients (especially those who were blind themselves) would act as patient motivators. PoS know how to screen the blind and send them to the hospital. All POS meet every quarter at AJEH to discuss their work in the respective areas. So why they do it? Since they have felt the trauma of being blind, they feel it a duty to eradicate blindness. This work has given them a new goal and made their life more meaningful.
