About 21 people in Kano have benefited from free cataract surgery conducted by Ahmadiyya Muslim Hospital over the weekend.

The Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Dr. Mudassar Mudassar, who coordinated the procedure explained that the effort was part of the hospital’s social responsibility.

He disclosed that the hospital had last week opened a camp where “hundreds were screened for free eye medicare and 21 worst cases were selected for operation.”

The CMD told journalists in Kano that “the beneficiaries of the free eye procedure included 12 men whose ages ranges from 40 and 75, while nine women whose age brackets fell within 50 and 70 also benefitted,” adding that, “all the 21 eye patients were carefully selected based on the merit of their cases and nearly all hailed from Kano municipal.

"Cataract is an eye problem that usually occurs in the old age when normal lens becomes opaque and requires replacement. By surgery we have successfully done the needful and we give Glory to Allah for the success."

According to him, plan was underway to open a free medical camp on other areas of human medical needs to render more assistance in line with its corporate social responsibility.
