A third estate provides glasses and surgery to 130 people in Ilorin

About 130 residents of Kwara benefited on Tuesday from a health program organized by the Organization of the Third Estate which was held at the clinic of the Emir’s palace, Ilorin.

A member of the organization, Dr Gambari Ibrahim, said the awareness was born out of the need to improve people’s health conditions, and based on the understanding that many people do not take good care of their eyes despite the importance of the eyes on the life of each individual as the light on the world.

Ibrahim explained that there are a lot of people who have different eye problems and some are already losing their sight and “we felt that is something we can do to support people.

“That’s why we decided to provide free eye tests to people to check the condition of their eyes and treat any disease they have.

We provided glasses for those who needed them and sponsored cataract surgery for those who needed them after screening, all at no cost to patients.

“The program is not a political project. We do this to make our contribution to the development of the society to which we belong.

“It’s not for party members; it’s up to anyone who hears about it to come get it,” Ibrahim said.

The President of the Third Estate, Ibrahim Hassan, said the program is organized to contribute their share to the development of Kwara State.

He said the organization has also run an entrepreneurship program to motivate and encourage retirees and young people who want to be self-employed.

According to him, “we train retired civil servants to avoid living in poverty after retirement.

“The training would help those who have retired to survive after retirement and draw young people’s attention to what they can do outside of white-collar jobs.”

One of the beneficiaries, Alhaji Saad Babatunde, appreciated the organization for this gesture which, he said, would go a long way towards meeting the health needs of the population.

He urged other organizations to borrow a leaf from the Third Estate in ensuring the welfare of the less privileged.
