Alhamdulillah, by the grace of Allah, the Lifeline foundation opened our 17th branch at Avalahalli in South Bengaluru on 30th June 2019. This centre operates in collaboration with Al Ansar trust who have opened a new community centre in the area. 60 members have been enrolled at this branch, and 12 groups have been formed. We thank our donors who have given funds to open this branch, and request all to pray for the success and benefit of our members through this branch. The residents of Avalahalli witnessed an Eye Check-up camp for the poor and needy in coordination with Al Ansar Trust. Overall 200 individuals were screened for eye diseases, 85 Glasses were noted down to give the patients with refractive errors and 17 patients were identified for the Cataract surgery. Some of the people were also provided eye drops for eye lubrication and free medicines.
