The Imphal East District United Clubs’ Organisation (IEDUCO) held a free eye camp and distribution of spectacles at Puribi Puraba Community Hall in Khurai Ningthoubung Leikai on April 3, 2023.
The eye camp was organized in collaboration with the JNIMS Ophthalmology Department and National Programme for Control of Blindness and Visual Impairment (NPCB & IV) National Health Mission, Manipur.
The event was supported by the Peaceful Club and supervised by the All Manipur United Clubs’ Organisation (AMUCO).
The initiative is part of IEDUCO’s efforts to organize free eye camps in four localities in Imphal East. The event was attended by several dignitaries, including Pheiroijam Nando Luwang, the president of AMUCO, as the chief guest, JNIMS Opthalmology Department Asst. Professor Dr. Rajkumar Victor and Imphal East District United Clubs’ Organisation (IEDUCO)’s President Takhellambam Dwijo graced the event as Guest of Honour; Laishram Ibomcha, Vice President of Peaceful Club as President of the program.
A total of 108 individuals received treatment at the free eye camp, and 80 people were provided with free spectacles.
Additionally, free 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.
IEDUCO plans to continue this initiative by organizing free eye camps at Kongba Kshetri Leikai on April 7, Lairikyengbam Leikai on April 8, and Lamlai AC on April 9.
These camps will provide much-needed healthcare services to the local community and contribute to the overall well-being of the people.
