DAKORE EGBUSON AKANDE PLEDGES TO DONATE HER CORNEA TO THE BLIND WHEN SHE DIES

Popular Nigerian actress, Dakore Egbuson-Akande, has said she is willing to donate her cornea to the blind when she dies.

The mother of two announced this yesterday via her Instagram page.

She wrote:

“I pledged my cornea to Eye bank of Nigeria, 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…”
Then she proceeded to ask fans about their opinions. “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?” she asked.
