The ObjectiveThe main objective of the project is to bring visual testing and treatment to the children at the Orphanage, and also satisfy their personal needs by presenting them with Provisions and Toiletries.

Consent and ApprovalThe consent of the State Coordinator NYSC Abuja and the Director Medical Services Department, CBN Abuja, was sort to carry out the project. Approval for execution was subsequently granted. In addition, the General Overseer of the orphanage was consulted on the proposed project and the consultations turned out very successful.

Project Plan To successfully carry out the project, revenue was generated from individuals and CBN staff provided the bulk of the fund. The project invested in treatment supplies; drugs, eye drops, testing equipments with provisions and toiletries. A medical personnel was also paid to assist.

SensitisationThe staff of the orphanage were informed to get the children ready for the exercise. The sensitization media impacted on a positive turn-out for the exercise.

Commencement/Skill poolThe project started at about 3:00pm with two Doctors. The turn up was highly impressive as the children were eager to be tested. The medical personnels received a total number of 27 Children including babies. The team worked for 2:00 hours until about 5:00pm when the staff and the children came out for a brief health discussion and presentation of gifts. The exercise rounded up at about 6:00pm.

Detailed of Children Examined and Treated A total of 27 children were seen including babies 5 were given anti-biotic eye drops 3 were given anti allergic eye drops 19 had no abnormality

Media Coverage The activities of the project was could not be covered by the media as the general overseer expressed her reservation as stigmatisation of the kids when they go to school.

Program ClosureThe project came to an end at about 6:00pm. The Matron commended the team for their unequivocal effort during the exercise and expressed her appreciation.

Brief on the health discussions and presentation of giftsAfter the free Eye Examination/Treatment, we had a health discussion with the Children they were encouraged to ask questions on any area of health. They asked a few questions and answers were given. They were highly impressed and a lot of them opted to become doctors when they are older.

Issues & ChallengesI did not have obvious challenges, though I would have loved to buy more gift items but for insufficient funds.

PrayerIn Conclusion, having successfully executed the one-off eye examinations, treatment and presentation of gifts, I am pleased to inform you that the children, staff and management of City of Refuge Orphanage are pleased with the visit and look forward to another in the near future.

Thank you.

Sincerely yours,

Dr. Adigwe Ifeoma Mary-AnneSignature: .......................................................
