In the year 1997 Lions Club of Hyderabad – Meerpet’s dream project “Lions Eye Hospital” was born based on the efforts made by Lion M Satyanarayana Reddy, a Philanthropic Lion Member and Lion G Ram Reddy, Charter member. While Lion G Ram Reddy in the capacity as Chairman of ‘Prasannanjaneya Temple Committee’ APHB Colony, Moula-ali, Hyderabad prevailed over his committee members to part with 550 square yards of temple land for the hospital, further boost came to the cause with Lion M Satyanarayana Reddy coming forward with a personal contribution of Rs. 5 lakhs to name the hospital as ‘M S Reddy Lions Eye Hospital’.
