Lend A Hand Foundation in conjunction with OBF Eyecare Solutions has organized a free eye screening exercise for the people of Mayera, Pokuase in the Ga West Municipality of the Greater Accra Region.
The exercise which took place on Saturday October 8, 2016 at Mayera Methodist Park was attended by both adults and children in and around Mayera.
The acting PRO of Lend A Hand Foundation, Nora underscored the importance of the exercise.
“We believe in humanitarian services. We believe in giving back to society. We are conducting an eye screening exercise for them just to check their eye conditions, see how far we can go and help them with the little we can. We believe in lifting others. We believe we rise in lifting other people. We all know vision is priceless,” she said.
Beneficiaries had thorough eye examinations conducted on them by a team of doctors from OBF Eyecare Solutions.
According to Dr. Alfred Nketia, the exercise was to check, “if people have certain conditions that can bind them that they are not aware of and we refer them to the appropriate quarters for due management… we are excited that, the little knowledge that we have acquired, we can also impact to others.”
Assemblyman for the area Mr Kwabena Appian said the whole community was overwhelmed by the gesture.
