No fewer than 1,200 people have received free eye health services in Yala local government area of northern Cross River state in the ongoing Ikaba Ngaji foundation free medical outreach.

Organizers say the program which began in August 21 at Oba in Okpoma area of Yala and scheduled to last 12 days, sees a minimum of 250 people tended to by professionals free of charge.

“I am not close to the records now but we number 250 people everyday and if by the end of the day, we see cases that need our attention, we take care of them and it is free of charge,” said Tony Idagu, an organizer.

The program is being executed in conjunction with the Tulsi Chanrai Foundation, a health specialist foundation from India which has been operating in the state.

Mr. Idagu said the team is now at the St. Joseph’s Primary School in Okuku, Yala and over 2,000 people have been registered to access the free eye health services rendered.
