DW in Nigeria!

To curb the rising rate of blindness in Nigeria, the Delta Women, a Non Governmental Organization, NGO, sunday, 20/5/2012 gave over one hundred persons free eye test and treatment as they flagged off a state wide eye test   in Oha community, Okpe Local Council Area of Delta State.

The organizers disclosed that the Delta women would later in the year conduct the free eye test in Onicha-Olona in Aniocha North and Irri in Isoko South LGAs and will also organize the same test in Kano State where their Late mother lived for over thirty years.

The free eye test is in honour of late Deaconess Comfort Ijorogu, the mother of the founder of the NGO, Mrs Elsie Ijorogu Reed. Late Deaconess Comfort Ijorogu was burried weekend at Oha town.

According to Reed, the eye treatment was organised to give a helping hand to those with eye problems in the society and to immortalise their late mother who had eye problem before her death. Beneficiaries of the free eye test thanked the Delta Women NGO for the gesture and eulogised the late Deaconess Ijorogu for bringing up her children in the fear of God and heart of service. During the free eye test, some people with eye problem were given free reading prescription eye glasses.
