“The Founder, Mr. Jagdish Chanrai, while addressing a press conference Wednesday in Abuja, said that the modern eye care hospital was established as part of the Foundation’s effort to eradicating curable blindness, while also offering a gift of sight to Nigerians.

 He said around 60 per cent of its services would be provided free of charge to benefit the poor and marginalised communities, while the rest would be at highly subsidised rate for those who can afford it, adding that the hospital is expected to be self-sustainable in about four years.”

He stated: “Run largely by a Nigerian team of 30 eye professionals who have recently undergone intensive training in India, the facility will be managed by the globally renowned Aravind Eye Care System in India, the largest provider of quality Eye-care in the world.

TCF Eye Hospital was established with the support of the Kewalram Chanrai Foundation, Worldwide Healthcare, Enpee Group, Fareast Merchantile Ltd, Nigeria, the HB Chanrai Group of Companies and other donors.”
