Restore sight to 200 villagers in rural Nigeria


Hello everyone and hope you are enjoying the summer, staying safe and keeping cool.

Thank you for your continued support for our project to Restore sight to 200 villagers in South Eastern Nigeria, whichprovides much needed primary and specialist eye, and primary medical care services.

We are pleased to inform you that the nine individuals who received cataract operations in January 2022 are all doing very well, and their eyes are regularly being monitored.

We have started planning for the next eye screening outreach and cataract operations in December 2022/January 2023 and we will provide an update in our next report.

Our Medication Maintenance Programme is going well at our monthly clinics, during which we monitor the blood pressure and provide them with medication. We also facilitate and fund specialist investigations (e.g., chest x-rays and echocardiograms) and treatments. We hope to include blood sugar monitoring and issuing medications to control diabetes by the end of the year.

Economic hardship is increasing in Nigeria, with the poorest in communities becoming poorer. We continue to provide small interest free loans to the poorest families, to assist them with petty trading and subsistence farming.

Thank you so much for your continued support and wish you all well.
