Photo of the Week: Washington-Based Lions Clubs Change Lives in Jamaica
When you reach out and partner with like-minded organizations, your ability to improve communities magnifies. Lions in Washington partnered with Great Shape! Inc. to bring healthcare and improved vision to families in rural Jamaica.
Members of the Seattle Bituin and Lake Stevens Lions clubs traveled with 40 other volunteers to Ocho Rios and spent one week assisting with the iCare program. Together they provided 1,800 eye exams, distributed 2,700 pairs of glasses, referred 175 patients for sight-saving surgery and saw 595 patients for blood pressure and glucose testing. During the three-year partnership, Lions have provided more than 18,000 pairs of glasses.
