“During these medical outreach programmes, the foundation not only provides free drugs and medical supplies but also sponsors surgeries for patients with eye ailments,” Aliyu-Balarabe explained.

He appealed to other affluent individuals, families, and groups to emulate this gesture, thereby strengthening the education sector in the country.
