In the small prefecture city of Baishan in Jilin province of northeastern China, a small team of doctors and nurses living on a rainbow colored train, is literally returning the gift of sight to hundreds of patients from the surrounding region for the past two months. It is one of four hospital trains called the Lifeline Express that have been chugging through the remote countrysides of China for the past twenty years to perform free cataract surgeries for thousands of patients from poverty stricken areas. Inspired by a similar project in India, the non-profit organisation started in Hong Kong and has since became part of a national health care program with opthalmologists and medical staff volunteering from major hospitals in Beijing and other cities. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), China accounts for about 18 percent of the world's blind, the largest number of blind people in the world at around five million. Cataracts is thought to be the principal cause of blindness in China, a condition that refers to a clouding of the crystalline lens of the eye and is normally linked to aging. It is responsible for half the country's blind and around 400,000 people become completely blind from the disease each year. The country has announced in August 2017 plans to provide free treatment for all cataract patients living in poverty. EPA-EFE/HOW HWEE
