Dr. Sanduk Ruit is an ophthalmologist on a mission to restore sight to Nepal’s blind. He is the executive director of the nonprofit Tilganga Institute of Ophthalmology in Kathmandu, Nepal, and has operated on more than 130,000 patients. He has adopted innovative surgical techniques for cataracts and often travels to perform operations, walking up to seven days hauling surgical equipment to reach patients who live in Nepal’s most remote villages. Why does Dr. Ruit do this? He lost family to treatable diseases and knows what it’s like not to have access to healthcare.

Deepak Kumar : Such a big hearted person he should be awarded with Nobel prize

Beau Dean : Edit: in less than 24 hours I have gotten 30 replies, and for the more part it has been an enlightening experience rather than an edifying one. I don't know everything, but to learn that this guy has received an award for his good deeds makes me happy. That is what I wanted. But let's just take a step back and have an honest look at ourselves. Why is it that when a comment praising this man for his good deeds then sparks replies that are, for the more part, critical and demeaning? Is the world just full of jaded people, or, are only the angry people taking the time to reply to here? Let's keep criticism constructive rather than needlessly hostile.

uzma ahmed : No words to say in honor of this doctor..blessed to have such humans still in this cruel world
