For some unfortunate people, when it rains it pours. One such person was Ms. Wahab Janea, resident of village Bhoonja, Tehsil Balakot, Distt. Mansehra. Her world collapsed on 8th October 2005. Her family, relatives, home and dreams were reduced to rubble when the devastating earthquake struck.

Seventy percent of her village was wiped-out, leaving the surviving shelter-less and without food.

To add to her worries, she lost vision in her right eye. With no money and in a state of trauma, she was brought to LRBT’s new hospital in Mansehra.

She was diagnosed with cataract and underwent surgery. Mercifully, her sight was restored. Though nothing can bring back the joys of her earlier life, she grieves not and looks forward to a brighter tomorrow.
