The project, over which IHH Humanitarian Relief Foundation, Nigerian Health Ministry, Islamic Development Bank and Turkish International Cooperation and Development Agency (TİKA) have launched talks, is expected to be completed in 2014.
6,000 cataract surgeries aimed annually
The project aims to make tens of thousands of people who cannot join daily life and live dependent on others due to avoidable blindness regain their vision. It is expected that around 6,000 cataract surgeries will be performed annually with the conclusion of the project.
Donations of crucial importance for realization of the project
Since Lemorde Hospital is an education hospital, experienced doctors to be sent from Turkey will not only perform cataract surgeries but they will also make important contribution to the education of students of medicine. Donations are of crucial importance for the realization of the project.
