ABALON Trust Chief Executive Officer, Adam Mapani MBE spoke to the congregation at Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church, Eternal Glory Church in London on the importance of eye health on Saturday, 2 July 2022.

The congregation included a large number of people joining via Zoom from Nigeria.

Diabetes and eye health are such important topics for the community due to increased community prevalence and risk. ABALON Trust is committed to reducing inequalities in this area and providing education to support better screening and management.

The congregation welcomed the education provided and offered thanks:

“I just wanted to say thank you for finding the time despite your tight schedule to honour our invitation. We thoroughly enjoyed it”, Minister-in-Charge, Pastor K. Akindiya.

“Thank you for this invite, I really learned and gained a lot from this seminar on Diabetes and our Eyes, I appreciate the speaker you invited for sharing his knowledge and understanding on the topic. This is good that the church is bringing things like this for us to learn well done”, member of the congregation that joined online from Nigeria.
