Seeking to benefit the eyesight of underprivileged children, around 600 of them were screened as part of a campaign organised here to test their visual acuity, officials said Wednesday.

Fiji's High Commissioner to India Yogesh Punja, and Australian Labor Party advisor and former NSW Parliament candidate, Aisha Amjad, participated in the campaign on Wednesday and distributed spectacles to school children, an NGO said.

The campaign, which screened around 600 children in the Government Sarvodaya Co-Ed Senior Secondary School at Kitchener Road, Malcha Marg, concluded with the distribution of 50 spectacles to needy children with refractive errors," India Vision Institute (IVI) said in a statement.
