Surgeries of Pellet Victims: Following an upsurge of violence in 2016, BWF organized free surgeries for those at risk of losing their eyesight because of pellet gun injuries. BWF partnered with Aditya Jyot Eye Hospital, Sankara Eye Foundation in this effort. Conducted by leading surgeons from India, these operations saved the sight of hundreds of victims.
