In his words, “Let me give an example. Averagely in this part of the world, if you do a cataract surgery, it will cost N40,000 to N50,000; that is the cheapest you can get anywhere. It can go as higher as N150,000 depending on which part of the country you are residing. Like Jos where I come from, we charge averagely N50,000.

“And if you look at the people here that came to access these services, I can bet you in a whole year, they would not raise this money to do this surgery. That is why if opportunities like this comes, you can see high turnout of patients”.
