Palmer’s Blog: Serving Deaf Children in Tunisia

Author: Leave A Comment

Last week I was in Tunisia for the All Africa Conference, and I was able to make a visit to a facility built by Lions for deaf children. Here is a photo of me with students I met from the school. These students are deaf, and they are taking courses at the school that teach them how to cook — a skill that they will be able to use for the rest of their lives.

I love Lions programs such as this one, which provide young people not only with the immediate resources and support they need, but also skills that they will keep with them forever to better improve their lives on their own.

Video: Lions Support Drug Rehabilitation

Author: Leave A Comment

Today, we’re sharing a video from the Lions Quarterly archives that features Lions in Norway who support a drug rehabilitation center. Not only does the center provide the medication that recovering addicts need, but it also gives them the resources and support they need to reclaim and rebuild their lives.

Watch the video above to learn more about the educational programs and emotional support that Lions offer at the center, and how the center gives people another chance to live happy, healthy lives.

Lions Mourn Friends in India

Author: 8 Comments

Dear Lions,

It is with an extremely heavy heart that I report tragic news out of India.

Over the week-end, Lions and family members from Sambalpur Lions Club – district 322 C2, were enjoying a picnic at the nearby Hirakud dam.  While transiting back to shore, their boat capsized, resulting in the loss of many lives.  Early reports indicate that as many as 15 Lions and 15 family members have drowned in this tragedy.

I ask you to join me in prayer for those who lost their lives and their surviving family members, as well as all the Lions throughout India who are only now coming to grips with the reality of what has happened.

I will post more information as it becomes available.

 

Sincerely,

Barry J. Palmer
