It is with deep regret that we share the news of the passing of Lion Dr. Paul E. Berman, O.D. over the weekend.
Dr. Berman was the founder and director of Special Olympics Opening Eyes, a program serving the visual needs of people with intellectual disabilities. He played a key role in forming the long-standing partnership between Lions Clubs International and Special Olympics through Opening Eyes.
The late Lion Berman was a 20 year member of the Hackensack Lions Club in New Jersey, USA. Dr. Berman was awarded the International Presidential Award and the Ambassador of Good Will Award, the highest honor the association bestows upon its members. In 2012, he was recognized at the White House as a Champion of Change.
In the photo above, the late Lion Dr. Paul Berman assists a Special Olympics athlete in selecting prescription glasses, alongside LCIF Chairperson Wayne Madden at the LCI International Convention in Hamburg, Germany, July 2013.
A truly dedicated man, he will be greatly missed. Lions Clubs International and LCIF send their deepest condolences to Dr. Berman’s family.
To learn more about this remarkable Lion, please read the Special Olympics tribute to Dr. Berman on the Special Olympics blog, where you can share your memories in the comments.
The LCIF disaster relief fund allows Lions to instantly respond whenever disaster strikes. One hundred percent of funds designated for Typhoon Haiyan Relief will go to the relief efforts in the Philippines. These funds are distributed to local Lions in the Philippines. There are nine districts, 380 clubs and more than 12,000 Lions ready to serve their fellow countrymen and rebuild their communities. The map pictured above and below shows the locations of the nine districts in the Philippines.
