More Than 1000 People In Apapa And Environs Benefit From FMN Caring For The Eye Initiative

In continuation of our dedication to healthcare, we organized a two-day Free Eye Screening exercise for people within the Apapa community and its environs. The program was carried out in collaboration with the Department of Ophthalmology, Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH). The screening which took place at Apapa Local Government Town Hall, recorded more than 1000 participants who were examined by highly skilled Ophthalmologists, Doctors, and Nurses. Also, participants were provided with recommended free eye medication and spectacles.

The Group Managing Director of Flour Mills of Nigeria Plc., Mr. Paul Gbededo, stated in his welcome address that the primary goal of the Eye Care Initiative was to help save, nourish and maintain the sight of participants, particularly those who might not have the means to visit hospitals and eye clinics.

According to Mr. Gbededo, the caring of the eye initiative should assist participants to assess the status of their eyes, and this would surely leave a lasting impression in their minds. He urged them to take full advantage of the opportunity afforded to them to review their visual health and learn healthy living habits which would lead to a general state of well-being.

Some of the participants remarked that the exercise was a great relief to them regarding saving cost and time as they could not cope with the stress of numerous appointments at hospitals and eye clinics. They expressed gratitude for the opportunity given by FMN and urged other companies to emulate the wonderful kindness shown by FMN to bring more health care facilities to their neighbourhood.

The company, in expressing its gratitude, acknowledged the support of officials from the Apapa Local Government Council, in the organization of the exercise by providing a conducive environment for both the people and the doctors, thus making the exercise a huge success.
