Sulabh International Organises Eye Test Of 150 Widows In Vrindavan On Mother’s Day

Vrindavan, May 12 (TNA) On the occasion of International Mother's Day, an eye check-up and bhajan program was organized by Sulabh Hope Foundation at Pagalbaba Ashram for the widowed mothers living in the ashrams of Vrindavan on Sunday.

The International Mother's Day program organized at the local Pagal Baba started by paying tribute to Dr. Bindeshwar Pathak, the founder of Sulabh International. The widows were successfully examined by a team of eye doctors from Delhi and provided with proper consultation as well as spectacles.

On this occasion, bhajans were also presented and sung by the mothers. Vice President of Sulabh Hope Foundation, Vineeta Verma informed on this occasion that eye testing was done for more than 150 mothers. In future, medical camps will be organized for mothers from time to time.

It may be known that many welfare schemes were started for the widows living in Vrindavan by the late Dr. Pathak, the founder of the Sulabh movement. Also, the tradition of celebrating Holi and Diwali was started by him about a decade ago and is still continuing. The widowed mother, despised by society, is being seen as an important link to bring her into the mainstream of society.

About 12 years ago, Dr. Pathak's organization Sulabh International started taking care of thousands of widows and giving them a dignified life. Sulabh is also providing them with vocational training and primary education. So that those widows can start a respectable life away from begging on the streets.
