Molokai Lions Club News Release
Together, we can have a great impact on improving the health of our neighbors and the island community we love. That is the philosophy of a large group of health professionals and volunteers who will be on Molokai during the first week of February to conduct free retina screenings.
The purpose is to reduce preventable blindness and assist the community in identifying approaches and strategies, which can lead to better health and longer, stronger, happier lives.
Retina screening is a free service provided by a partnership between Molokai’s Lions Club, Project Vision Hawaii and WE, a hui for health.
Retina screenings will be offered at:
• Grace Episcopal Church, Kualapu`u, Thursday, Feb. 6, 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
• Kalani`ana`ole Hall, Kaunakakai, Sunday, Feb. 9 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
Retina screenings, as well as more comprehensive wellness screening and information, will be offered at:
• Home Pumehana, Kaunakakai, Friday, Feb. 7 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
• Kalani`ana`ole Hall, Kaunakakai, Saturday, Feb. 8 10 a.m.–4 p.m.
Many on the island know about the Lions’ dedication to service in the community. Lions spend countless hours every year to better the world. Nearly 100 years ago, Helen Keller, champion of blind persons, challenged Lions to become “knights for the blind.” The Lions have never wavered in answering the call.
