    Dakore

    Nollywood Actress ,Dakore Egbuson -Akande has donated her eyes to the blind
    The mother of two said upon her death her eyes should be donated to those who have reversible blindness

    Dakore was recently unveiled as the Ambassador for the Eye bank

    She disclosed the donation on her instagram page

    According to her it is a great honour to use the cornea to help those in need since she would no longer need them upon her death

    "I was officially unveiled as the Ambassador for the Eye bank of Nigeria with the aim of sensitizing the public about the need for Cornea donors to help those with reversible blindness. I pledged my cornea that day and what that means is when I leave this earth I willingly donate my cornea to help give the gift of sight especially as I would no longer be needing it....what are your views on this and becoming a donor in general? I would really appreciate your kind feedback so we can start the conversation...will you be willing to do it for a loved one or a stranger? How do you SEE it? Factors that prevent most people from doing this is fear but of what exactly?
