Shepherd Care Hosts Eye Clinic

By Becky Toyin Obarorakpor

Shepherd Care International Ministries on the 4th-7th October,2020 Collaborated with Catholic Optical  Outreach Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State, Nigeria  in providing FREE Optical Consultation and Highly Subsidized eye medication and glasses to the people of Eku Community and its environs.

 

The venue was Shepherd Care Chapel A.K.A. Restoration Gate.

 

Over 400 people registered for the outreach and were attended to.

 

The outreach has increased the number of people using eye glasses which hopefully, will lead to a lower level of blindness tendency in the area.

 

It was discovered that lack of proximity  to Eye care centres and facilities has been one of the major reasons why most of the people suffered severe eye problems which eventually led to their blindness.

 

Cataract and Glaucoma cases were very high and most of the people tested were  ignorant of their health status especially diabetes and high blood pressure.

 

The Camp was a success and the partners look forward to having another outreach in January 2021
