    After 3 months of Supplemental Nutrition Feeding project for malnourished children under our program in a poor community, we, members of Manila Amity Lions Club were gifted with a touching song number by the beneficiaries. This was during the closing ceremony of the program where we also awarded those who attained the biggest weight gain after the feeding period. So heartwarming. Lions not only changes lives, we touch hearts.
