The Club’s commitment in serving
humanity has continued to manifest in the positive changes in the lives of many
people in its community daily.

Speaking at the commencement of the
Project recently, the Club’s President, Rotarian Rotarian Isichei Osamgbi, who
led a delegation to the Eye Foundation Clinic, GRA, Ikeja, said the treatment
was to support the patients to regain their sight in order to continue living
like every other person in the society.

He urged similar humanitarian
organisations and government to show some more sense of responsibility to its
people by providing discounted or free Cataract Eye treatment or similar
gestures to the people.

He said: “Our duty in Rotary is to see
how we can impact and improve on people’s lives and make life easier for the
less privileged”. Rotarian Osamgbi further urged Rotarians not to relent in
their good work towards humanity and thanked the management of the Eye
Foundation Clinic for their support as well as members of the Club.
The Rotary Club of Ikoyi President
added that “for us in Rotary, impacting on People’s lives and serving humanity
is our paramount business and the Club is ever ready to help the less privilege
in the society as much as we can.” 

The Project Coordinator and a member
of the Club, Rotarian Dr. Adebowale Omole, urged the patients to follow up on
the treatment and abide by the doctor’s prescription, saying that the Club has
taken all the burdens of providing the treatment in partnership with the Eye
Foundation Clinic in the spirit of Rotary humanitarianism. 

He urged other philanthropic and
Non-Governmental Organisations and also government to key into the humanitarian
service of Rotary to make life easier and meaningful for the less privilege in
society. He equally commended the President of the Club and its Members for
making the project a reality.

The Eye Doctor, Dr Alarape Taofik,
thanked Rotary Club of Ikoyi for remembering the less privilege patients who
were in need of medical attention and promised that every patient within the
Project scope will be attended to.

Rotarian Osamgbi equally expressed
satisfaction with the partnership and delivery of the service and further
requested that the outreach be conducted again in the future as more people are
in need of it.

On their part, some of the
beneficiaries, Mrs. Bose Afolayan and Mr. Rasheed Busari on behalf of others

you that before now I could not see very well, but God has used Rotary to make
my life better. Thank you Rotary, thank you Eye Foundation,” Mrs. Bose Afolayan

On his part, Mr. Rasheed Busari said: “what
Rotary is doing with this Cataract Eye Surgery is a very big thing to us and we
