"It is a very good job [you are funding] and we are really thankful from the bottom of our hearts." Dr Prerna is passionate about the work your donations help fund. She's been a cataract surgeon at Sewa Sadan Hospital in Bhopal, India for 20 years, sometimes carrying out as many as 10 cataract surgeries a day! #MillionMiracles
