A PROJECT totalling $US600,000 ($F1.10m) is being undertaken by Lions Club of Fiji to improve eye clinic services in the Western Division.

The group is focusing on the Lautoka Diabetic Eye Centre in particular, says zone chairman for Fiji Mukesh Madho.

"We are working on modernising the equipment at the Lautoka Diabetic Eye Centre," he said.

Mr Madho said the organisation was now looking for more ways to help Fijians and this was why a sixth branch would be established in Nadi later this week.

According to Mr Madho, a function would be held to formally install the officials and members.

"Officials from Lions Clubs International from New Zealand will carry out the installation.

"Members are expected to meet at least once a month for a business meeting and once for dinner and a social gathering.

"Currently we have 23 members who are from various business organisations," Mr Madho said.
