Guinness Nigeria Plc, brewer of Guinness Stout has given the Guinness Eye Centre at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) a face lift.
The Guinness Eye Centre is one of several corporate citizenship initiatives implemented by Guinness Nigeria.
The Guinness Eye Centre in LUTH was opened in 1962 and has since delivered eye care services to numerous Nigerians. In 2010, Guinness Nigeria, in partnership with the management of the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, upgraded the Eye Centre with laser eye equipment worth N7million.
This year, the Eye Centre is being treated to a facelift which includes the painting of the facility, the replacement of the external signage and furniture. Guinness Nigeria sponsors two eye centres in Nigeria, the second one located in Ontisha, Anambra State.
The Guinness Eye Centres enjoy continuous support through subventions such as provision of equipment and restoration of infrastructure.

The facelift of the Guinness Eye Centre LUTH demonstrates our passion for community involvement and humanitarian service, which is the focus of our corporate citizenship initiatives in Nigeria”.
