President’s Service Blog: Global Service Action Campaigns

This year I’m asking Lions to participate in four Global Service Action Campaigns. These campaigns will give you an opportunity to expand your vision of how your club can help in your community and bring more attention to the service you are providing.

In August many clubs shined a light on youth by planning programs in conjunction with the United Nations International Youth Day. In October, I’m asking Lions to Share the Vision by shining a light on preventable blindness with projects in support of our own World Sight Day.
I recently worked on a video message about these campaigns. I hope you’ll enjoy this behind-the-scenes look at the video shoot. And look for the message about Share the Vision later in September.

What is your club planning for the Global Service Action Campaigns? Let me know in the comment section.

    The Tema Lions Club will partner with eye care professionals from the Tema General Hospital to conduct vision, glaucoma and cataract screenings for the chiefs and people of Adukrom, a farming community in the Eastern Region, Ghana. Nana Otutu Kono, the 3rd Chief of Adukrom, has warned the Activity Committee to prepare for about 1,200 patients with various eye defects from his community and neighboring communities.

    One project that the Dacula Lions Club is looking into, in partnership with our Georgia Lions Lighthouse and neighboring clubs, is an event revolving around the highly acclaimed documentary, Going Blind.

    The movie, produced by Lovett Productions, does an outstanding job of outlining prevention, detection, treatment and coping mechanisms.

    I would highly recommend this opportunity for any and all clubs.
