PROMOTING VISION & HEALTHY LIVING FOR WOMEN & GIRL

Lucynthia Obasohan, Nigeria

As a trained optometrist, I volunteer with NGOs to give back to the society. Having schooled in Benin City Edo State, I realize women are often the bread winners in the homes with little care for themselves.
I am inspired to provide free eye diagnosis and treatment for 100 poor women and girls unable to afford healthcare. In partnership with like minded volunteers and friends.The program will hold in a local community in Benin-city,by October 2017.If I won, funds will be used to purchase glasses, eyedrops and medications, blood presure kit to test elderly women, training charts, and key items
