“SL donated us 35,000 eyes, but we lost sight” – Pakistani doctor
“Sri Lanka donated us eyes, but we have lost sight,” lamented leading Pakistani ophthalmologist Dr. Niaz Brohi.
Pakistan is the largest recipient of eye donations from Sri Lanka, having received at least 35,000 corneas since 1967, he has told samaa.tv.
Ever since a mob lynched the Sri Lankan factory manager Priyantha Kumara Diyawadana in Sialkot, Dr. Brohi said he has been grief-stricken like many others in the country.
“We hang our heads in shame,” he said.
He has written to the Sri Lanka Eye Donation Society to offer condolences.
