While conducting a nationwide research on visual impairment among the children in rural Bangladesh back in 2000, Dr. Muhit travelled all 64 districts if the country and realized that major policy intervention is needed to establish the rights of people with disabilities in the country. To address their needs, he established CSF Global and since then, Dr. M. A. Muhit through CSF Global has conducted cataract operations free of cost for more than 12,000 people throughout the country. Dr. Muhit has also distributed hundreds of wheelchairs among the children with disabilities in Shahjadpur, Shirajganj area in the last six years.
