“Clear vision, healthy eyes“ project
Back in September 2012, DP World Constanta partnered up with Lions Club Romanian subsidiary in a project aimed at providing cost free ophthalmological care for the less fortunate children and adults part of Constanta county community. To this extent DP World Constanta provided for a VAN that was fully equipped with specialized medical equipment to travel through Constanta county offering specialized medical care to people with limited or no access to any decent medical assistance. Based on volunteer work, the medical personnel of a reputable Constanta eye clinic offered their free time to the project. Putting plan into action, the mobile clinic has started its journey through the county, where at the end of March this year it paid a visit to the foster care children in Agigea, a location close to our terminal. During said visit, around 85 children and 15 adults have gone through medical checkup, with more than half being identified to have ophthalmological condition ranging from minor affections that could be treated on spot to major affections that needed follow up within the Constanta eye clinic.
By spring next year the project “Clear vision, healthy eyes “aims to offer over 600 institutionalized children from Constanta free ophthalmological care. As such the journey continues, and together with our partners and Lions Club’s international reputation and experience we hope to be able also in the future to improve the quality of life for the less fortunate.
