OVER a hundred people benefited from the star project of Rotary Club of Opebi bordering on free eye test, free eye glasses and screening of eyes to discover other optical problems that may require surgery or other medical attention.

The exercise which was presided over by President Hakeem Ibrahim at Access Hotel, Opebi was attended by members of the Club as well as Assistant Governors, Dapo Adiro, Abayomi Anthony Ugorji, past District Governor, Dr. Deinde Shoga among others.

Speaking at the event, Ibrahim, who was overwhelmed with joy, described the event as “wonderful.”

“I am particularly happy that this star project is executed today and the turn out very impressive.
“Our target was to reach out to 100 people but we have exceeded that target. Our joy is the large turnout of people to benefit from the programme.

“The Club has planned to do a follow-up, especially on those whose cases go beyond the usage of glasses in terms of assisting them in whatever way we can and ensure we do not abandon them half way with their cases. We have provision for those that have cataract, whose cases would require surgery and those that doctors would recommend for further treatment aside from gift of eyeglasses. We will assist them as much as we can afford,” he said adding:

“I have chosen eye problem as our star project for this year because of the importance of eye in man’s life. This is to be followed by donation to the orphanage.
“We can only carry out our daily activities when we have a clear sight” he said.

Ibrahim, while disclosing that the club in the past made a donation of modern toilet to Opebi Grammar School said the previous administration donated drugs and equipment to Onigbongbo Health Centre, and that the club is known to have been supporting literacy and adult education as well as birthday celebrations for kids.
