LQ: Lions Down Syndrome Center

The Lions Club of Kota Bharu in Malaysia saw a need in their community — children with certain disabilities were not receiving the special attention and early intervention they needed. In 1997, the Lions established a Down Syndrome Center, where teachers taught language, reading, writing, numbers, fine motor skills and basic life skills to children with Down Syndrome.

Watch the Lions Quarterly segment above to learn more about the center, including parents’ reactions and how it has grown thanks to help from LCIF. You can also view the entire July Lions Quarterly on the Lions News Network.
