The Lautoka Diabetes Eye Clinic was the proud recipient of some new equipment donated last Saturday by the Lions Clubs International Foundation.

The handover was received by the Assistant Minister for Health and Medical Services, Veena Bhatnagar, at the Lautoka Hospital.

Mrs Bhatnagar commended the partnership between the Lions Clubs and Government to enhance the medical sector.

“This partnership continues today with the Lions further supplying the new equipment to upgrade the capabilities of the clinic,” she said.

“This new equipment will considerably enhance the services that the clinic is providing, not only at the Lautoka Hospital, but at all the other outreach clinics from Rakiraki through to Sigatoka.

“The Fijian Government is very keen to continue to support initiatives such as this and looks forward to a long and successful relationship with the Lion Clubs throughout Fiji.”

The new equipment is worth $430,000. The clinic was also funded in 2000 by the Lions Clubs International Foundation.
