Millions of people in the developing countries of the world are suffering from corneal blindness. These persons can be cured by replacing the defective cornea with the cornea of a donated eye. A charitable society of your city has organised a campaign in your neighbourhood in order to create awareness about this fact. If you are asked to participate in this mission, how would you contribute in this noble cause?
(i) State the objective of organising such campaigns.
(ii) List two arguments which you would give to motivate the people to donate their eyes after death.
(iii) List two values which are developed in the persons who actively participate and contribute in such programmes.
(i) The objective of organising such campaigns will be stated as "One pair of eyes gives vision to TWO CORNEAL BLIND PEOPLE" or "By donating our eyes after we die, we can light the life of a blind person".
(ii) Argument 1: As we have got the gift of vision, why not pass it on to somebody who does not have it.
Argument 2: Eye donors can belong to any age group or sex. People who use spectacles or those operated for cataract can still donate their eyes. People who are diabetic, have hypertension, are asthma patients and those without communicable diseases can also donate eyes.
(iii) The values developed in the persons who actively participate and contribute in such programmes are social welfare and awareness.
