FAME – Food, vitamin A supplements, Measles vaccination and Education. This is a unique interventional research project to prevent childhood blindness from Vitamin A deficiency. Key to the continuing success of FAME are the Canossian catholic sisters and their team who feed 300 children in Basman village every single day of the year. Below the children are seen enjoying mangoes rich in vitamin A.

NB A group calling itself friendsagainstpovery.org are claiming connection with the Canossian sisters at Motihari and the Basman village project. Second Sight and the Canossian Sisters’ Mother House at Lucknow would like to make it clear that this group has nothing to do with them.
