Eye Donation Awareness Rally 2023” & “Human Chain for Vision 2023”

In a remarkable display of unity and compassion, Department of Ophthalmology at the SRM Institute of Science and Technology organised the “Eye Donation Awareness Rally 2023” and the “Human Chain for Vision 2023” on September 8, 2023. The event took place under the clear morning skies, starting at 9:30 AM and lasting until 10 AM, with the meeting point at the iconic SRM Main Arch.

The highlight of the day was the prestigious “Flag Off Ceremony,” a momentous occasion graced by the presence of the esteemed Registrar of the SRM Institute of Science and Technology. The flag-off symbolised a collective commitment to raising awareness about eye donation, a cause that holds the potential to transform lives and bring light into the world of those in need.

As participants embarked on the rally, they formed a human chain that not only connected them physically but also emotionally to the cause. The message was clear: together, we can make a significant impact on eye donation awareness.

The culmination of these events was the “closing ceremony,” held at 11 a.m. in the hospital seminar hall. This heartwarming gathering witnessed the presentation of “Testimonials” to three incredible Eye Donor families who, through their selfless acts, illuminated the lives of others. It was a poignant moment, a testament to the boundless generosity of the human spirit.

The success of the “Eye Donation Awareness Rally 2023” and the “Human Chain for Vision 2023” echoes far beyond the event itself. It signifies a community united by a shared vision—a world where the gift of sight is accessible to all. The rally and human chain were not just symbolic gestures; they were powerful steps towards realising this vision. They demonstrated that when individuals and communities come together for a common cause, the impact can be profound.

As we celebrate the success of these events, let us remember that the spirit of giving, of selflessness, and of spreading awareness about eye donation must continue to shine brightly in our hearts and actions. With every step taken in this rally, we have moved closer to a world where everyone has the opportunity to see the beauty that surrounds us.
