Managing Director of Sea Coach Express, Olusegun Jaji said the charity was born out of humanitarian considerations as he compares himself to those persons who cannot afford to pay and access medical care for their eyes.

Olusegun said he developed the idea when he had an eye problem sometime ago in detention and upon visiting the UMC eye Hospital, he met a good number of persons who were unable to afford paying to access eye care services.  He said he had to foot their bill and decided thereon to think on how he could initiate the charity that has come to be established at the moment, which is also part of his company’s social corporate responsibilities.

Receiving treatment

Speaking to one of the Doctors from the UMC eye hospital, Kissy Urban center, Dr, John Buchan said he was impressed by the charitable initiative of Sea Coach Express as the venture is really great, noting that such is hardly largely undertaken by individuals. He said when the Director of Sea Coach Express contacted the UMC hospital; they were delighted to be part of this human gesture as it is an opportunity for them to serve their little ways in servicing mankind. He said the turnout was impressive.

Speaking on behalf of the Aberdeen community people, the Councilor for Ward 393 Aminata Koroma commended the efforts of Sea Coach Express for taking such a standing initiative. She thanked the charity for being kind to her constituents and mankind as a whole. The Councilor called on members of her community to make good use of the opportunity which finds itself at their own very doorstep.

Over 500 persons gathered at the company’s compound at Murray Town to receive eye treatment, eye examinations, and glasses for free.  Meanwhile the free treatment is expected to continue on June 28 at the next beneficiary town of Mahera Lungi, Kaffu Bullom and Sea Coach Express is hoping to extend the gesture to other parts of the country in the near future.
