Dagomo Foundation Offers Free Medical Services In Edo State

A non-governmental organization, Dagomo Foundation will today commence a two-day free eye, dental and general medical mission for the elderly in Edo state, an effort aimed at creating wider access to health care for the less privileged Nigerians.

In a statement made available to LEADERSHIP yesterday, the organizers said that the medical mission will commence today, December 28,

targeting persons aged 60 and above, in memory of late Grace Onaiwu Omoigui’s first posthumous birthday. ‘’Mrs. Omoigui (nee Asemota), teacher, lawyer and philanthropist, passed-on last month at a Lagos hospital, following complications from multiple gunshot injuries from an armed robbery attack in Benin City, Edo State, on her way from a bank. She was one month away from her 83rd birthday.

“This was a project dear to Mom’s heart and the focus of the foundation is primarily on the elderly; it was largely her idea,’’  the statement said.

It said that the foundation will also unveil an ultra-modern elderly care centre in a ceremony to be attended by Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki. “It does form part of her funeral activities given that it happens a few days before. However, our desire is to celebrate her and what she stood for, and to ensure her legacy lives on.”

“The aim is to create a new social order through a commitment deeply rooted in a passion for development at all levels,” the organisers added.
