Chinese Ambassador to Fiji Zhou Jian visited CWM and helped remove the dressings for the patients regaining sight.

Having completed over 3,000 overseas surgeries in the past 10 years, Professor Chen’s team’s 4th visit to Fiji has helped cataract patients return to a normal life.

The friendship between the people of China and Fiji is further enhanced by the medical team’s visit.

China says it will continue to support the development of Fiji’s health sector, so as to build a closer China-PICs community with a shared future.
