AMUCO President Nando Luwang lamented that there are several cases of eye patients in the State. However, politicians never try to help their own people with timely health checkups and treatments.
He also emphasizes that government departments must coordinate with the Civil Society organization and conduct eye camps and other free medical camps in different areas of the State.
Such an initiative will increase the trust of the people living in far-flung areas and there will be unity among different communities as well.
During the camp, medicines were distributed with the help of MSRAM & CRU. The event was a great success and will help to address the issue of visual impairment in the community.
