Thrissur: Vatanappally residents here have achieved a new milestone in the noble pursuit they are in. 1600 individuals have given the consent forms to donate eyes and 100 deceased have already donated eyes.

Seetha (77), who passed away the other day, marked the 100th donation. Though the initiative was started by the Society of St Vincent de Paul under the parish of St Francis Xavier's Church, it has been taken by people in the locality irrespective of faith orientation, caste and gender.

Interestingly, the initiative started in 2017 has penetrated to three wards of nearby Thalikulam panchayat.
