Clarissa Foundation Eye Camp

Clarissa Foundation in partnership with Tulsi Chanrai Foundation organised an Eye Camp at Lokpanta Community of Isunneochi, Local Government Area, Abia State. Dr. Virgy Claire, the founder of the Clarissa Foundation organised the Eye Camp in remembrance of her mother.

The programme was a huge success. Mr. Richard Silvester, Program Manager of Calabar Eye Centre and his team’s dedication and commitment was applauded by the community. A total of 300 patients were screened for cataract in a single day.Local community members helped by volunteering. Patients after undergoing Eye Surgeries returned back home with great joy and celebration. A brief reception, with video coverage of individual testimonies, was held in their honour. This was followed by a thanksgiving procession next day during the Sunday morning Mass. 

Dr. Virgy Claire says “it is not easy to describe the atmosphere that enveloped the congregation - the tears of joy, the loud applause, and the ecstasy - during the rendition of just two of the success stories, especially that of Mrs Paulina, whose case, I understand, proved very difficult, though not too difficult for God and TCF’s commendable precision and professionalism.” She further adds “indeed short of words... but, I will not forget to mention the excellent reception my people received in Calabar, to the envy of the drop-outs and to the admiration and heart-felt gratitude of the entire community“.

In fact, the entire Lokpanta community and beyond have been set aglow with joy and hope.
