Bishop of Enugu Inaugurates Ave Maria Eye Clinic, a CIDJAP Development and Health Initiative, to Tackle Community Health Challenges

On October 26th 2023, the Bishop of Enugu, the Auxiliary Bishop, and the Diocesan Curia gathered to bless and officially open the new Ave Maria Eye Clinic sponsored and funded as a CIDJAP Development and Health Project to address the growing challenges facing our people due to ill health and many eye problems.

CIDJAP’s Director and Diocesan Projects and Development Coordinator, Msgr. Obiora Ike obtained funds from UNA TERRA UNA FAMILIA in Switzerland to completely build a new structure that houses the Eye Clinic. Over 60 million NGN has been invested in the project through CIDJAP.

Managed by the female Religious congregation DMMM with Sr. Dr Stella Onwubiko as the doctor in charge, the centre located inside the Holy Ghost Cathedral compound served in previous years as a dental centre initiated by Bishop Michael Eneja in l983.

It was transferred out, and the building was knocked down and rebuilt to be the new place to cure eye-related issues, especially for poor people.

A welcome message by sister Onwubiko Stella established the facts and the history of the centre.
