Al-Ain Mobile Eye Clinic will provide essential eye treatment in Africa

On 23 April 2017, the World Head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, the Fifth Khalifa (Caliph), His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad inaugurated the Al-Ain Mobile Eye Clinic at the Baitus Sabuh Mosque in Frankfurt.

Following an inspection of the mobile eye clinic, His Holiness unveiled a plaque to mark the occasion before leading a silent prayer.

The Al-Ain Mobile Eye Clinic, will serve as part of the Gift of Sight scheme run by the charity Humanity First. The clinic includes facilities for eyesight tests, basic treatment and surgery.

The mobile clinic will soon depart for Africa, where it will provide a range of essential eye treatments, including cataract surgery, to people living in some of Africa’s most remote towns and villages.

Addressing an international conference hosted by Humanity First in January 2015, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad said:

Serving humanity requires that a person does not rest until he has solved the problems of others and takes the weight of their burdens onto his own shoulders. It requires that a person’s heart is consumed by a love for others, whereby he cares not for his own comfort – but rather he cares only for the comfort of others. It requires that a person is ever-ready to personally absorb all forms of distress for the sake of others and to consider the pain and of others as though it is his own pain. It requires that a person is ready to bear personal suffering or anxiety so that others can live in peace and contentment.
