Since then SNEDS observe the day every year. In the national Voluntary Blood Donation and Posthumous Eye Donation Day SNEDS arrange rallies and camps for blood and eye donation. We get huge response in those activities and people of all classes show their interest in those activities.

We believe the day will help us in creating movement in the society for the Posthumous eye donation.

Sandhani "Blindness Relief" Lottery

  
Form the very beginning we have the dream to establish a full fledge cornea hospital in the country to ensure eye grafting for the poor people. For this huge amount of money is necessary. It is not possible for SNEDS alone to arrange this huge amount of money alone as it is a non-profit voluntary organization. For this SNEDS arranged lottery programs in different time. The lotteries were opened for all. Till now we arranged three lottery programs. It can be mentioned that the lottery programs were arranges by taking prior permission from internal ministry of the people's republic of Bangladesh. The lottery gave us huge breakthrough and we hope that our dream, a full fledge cornea hospital, will come to reality soon.
