NGO Offers Free Eye Screening


Nigerians have been enjoined to pay attention to their health, especially, their  eyes often regarded as the light and the engine room of the body.

Governments at all tiers were also charged to partner effectively with notable,  purpose-driven NGOs, corporate bodies and  wealthy individuals to impact on the  teeming poor masses, who cannot afford the increasing cost of health care delivery.

Mrs. Doria Sunny-Agboh, teacher and mother of two made the remark after benefiting  from the Free Eye Screening  Exercise for herself and her children. The event was  organised by the Save-A-Sight Foundation, in conjunction with the Halifax Eye Centre  at the Itua Private Hospital, Festac Town, Lagos.

Speaking at the event, the Executive Director, Save-A-Sight Foundation, Mrs. Kate  Adekunle-Samuel, said there was a partnership between her Foundation and Halifax Eye  Centre at Itua Private Hospital, Festac Town, Lagos, which is held on every first  Friday of every month from 7.30 a.m. to 12 noon. She informed the gathering on her  establishment’s corporate passion to assist the poor masses  with a view to  alleviating such problems.

To this end, Mrs. Adekunle-Samuel passionately pleaded with the privileged, the  wealthy, corporate bodies and other viable, notable NGOs, to  assist them in  bridging the gap between the rich and the poor through several avenues, such as the  Free Eye Screening and Free Health Care Delivery Services and other Human Capacity  Development Programme.
