Kolkata (West Bengal) [India], April 1: The Cable TV Equipments Traders & Manufacturers Association (CTMA), in association with East Kolkata Nagrik Foundation, organised a Free Eye Operation Camp for 100 cataract patients from economically weaker sections of the society today at Lake Town, Kolkata.

“I congratulate CTMA and Eastern Kolkata Nagarik Foundation for arranging the free eye camp here today which benefited more than 100 needy people. I also express my deepest gratitude to CTMA for donating the eye-care equipment, I am glad that besides cable business they are also active in social welfare initiatives.

I wish them all the best and my support in furthering such initiatives in the future,” said Mr Sujit Bose.

Being a part of an initiative to help our poor brothers and sisters get their proper eyesight back is a very humbling experience that makes us all very proud.
