VP Ma’ruf promotes cornea donation to help the blind

Posted On Oct 19 2020 by

first_imgEye donation is still lacking in Indonesia, Vice President Ma’ruf Amin said on Thursday, while pointing out that it could be the answer to help those suffering from visual impairment.Ma’ruf said 3 percent of the population were blind, according to the government’s data. Of those people, 4.5 percent are blind as a result of corneal damage. “Corneal damage can be cured through eye donation. But the practice is still very rare in Indonesia,” he said in his speech during the virtual launch of the Cornea Donation Center (CDD) at Undaan Eye Hospital in Surabaya, East Java on Thursday as reported by kompas.com.He commended the opening of the center, which he said was a response to manage visual impairment cases in the country. He expressed hope that the center would make it possible for residents, especially those living in Surabaya, to donate their corneas when they die.He also urged the hospital to promote eye donation, as it is still considered a new thing, unlike blood drives, to increase people’s awareness to help the blind.Ma’ruf further said it would be beneficial for everyone as one corneal donor could be used by five recipients.“Right now, there are 70 hopeful donor recipients for one cornea across the world,” the senior Muslim cleric said, adding that those with visual impairment could get help if more people donated their corneas.

first_imgRIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (Reuters) – Brazilian prosecutors charged the former head of the national Olympics committee (COB), Carlos Nuzman, and five other people yesterday with corruption based on an investigation of alleged bribery to have Rio de Janeiro host the 2016 Games.Nuzman, who was provisionally suspended by the International Olympic Committee and arrested in Rio on October 5, was charged with racketeering, money-laundering and violating currency laws.The former governor of Rio de Janeiro state, Sergio Cabral, and former COB director Leonardo Gryner also were charged with corruption in connection with a $2 million (£1.5 million) payment to guarantee votes for Rio, the prosecutors’ office said.Nuzman, 75, a former IOC member and now honorary member, is accused of arranging bribes to get the IOC to pick Rio as host of the 2016 Olympic Games. He has denied any wrongdoing.Those charged included Brazilian businessman Arthur Soares, who prosecutors said acted as an intermediary, and Lamine Diack, a former IOC member from Senegal and former head of the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF).Brazilian police raided Nuzman’s home in September and accused him of paying a $2M bribe to Diack’s son Papa Diack, who was also charged.
