MONROVIA, April 21 (LINA) – The Chief Administrator at the New Eye Sight Center in 72nd Paynesville has said the lack of adequate financial support is a major challenge facing the center.

Mr. Calvin N. Daysee said since its setting up in 2009 as a Liberia-based non- governmental organization engaged in providing affordable, accessible and quality eye healthcare service, the center is yet to receive adequate financial support from government and its international partners.

Making the disclosure in an interview with the Liberia News Agency at his 72nd officeFriday, Daysee said there has been little support from government through the Ministry of Health, SEGAL Family Foundation and its overseas ambassador, Mrs. Karine King, through whom the center sometimes receives operational funds from the Lutheran Church and Lions club, but much still needed to be done.

He pointed out that since the setting up of the center headed by Mr. Robert F. Dolo and few other Liberians, the facility has performed 6,000 surgery cases and also treated over 12,000 minor cases on patients from the ages of one to 80 years.

He disclosed that the New Eye Sight Center has also established branches in Grand Bassa, Margibi and River Cess counties, with plans to move into Bong, Nimba, Sinoe, Maryland and River Gee counties.

Daysee appealed to government and partners in the health sector to help provide more funding for the center to succeed in providing adequate and quality eye healthcare services to the people of Liberia.
