We target 2000 people initially. But we have more than that and at the last count it was above 4000 beneficiaries, So we have decided to do this to reach as many people as we can annually,” says Hon. Hussain Kero. 

On his part, the medical expert and Chairman of Visions Saver Center, Dr Kamal S. A. Umar explained that the initial target was 2000, and due to the poverty and hardship situation we attend to 5000

"So good, we came on Friday for the medical outreach sponsored by Hussaini Kero Foundation and we have seen so many people where we targeted 2000 but due to the poverty they came more than 5000 people."

So, we operated 400 with cataracts, over 3000 given medications, and over a thousand short or long-sight patients given glasses, we will really appreciate this program".

According to the Head Medical Team,  Dr Kamal Umar said the outreach project is part of the commitment of the Honourable Hussaini Kero's healthcare delivery to his constituency.
