Sharing the Vision Global Service Action Campaign

Author: Leave A Comment

During the month of October, Lions are encouraged to join in the fight against blindness by participating in the Sharing the Vision Global Service Action Campaign. We are inviting you to take action by organizing sight projects to help make a difference in your own community.

Lions all over the globe are working towards serving 100 million people by December 2017 through their participation in Global Service Action Campaigns. The Centennial Service Challenge is split into four Global Service Action Campaigns that each focus on different projects –youth, vision, environment and hunger. This month we are highlighting vision projects such as:nw-sept-2014-sharing-vision

  • Organizing an eye health and safety presentation
  • Conducting vision and diabetes screenings for the elderly
  • Organizing a community “sight walk”
  • Arranging recreational activities for those who are blind or visually impaired

Our special goal is to serve 10 million children with eye care. Report your club’s service activity to MyLCI and don’t forget to share photos of your project as well.

How will your club be “Sharing the Vision?”

The Lions from District 325-A2 in Nepal organized a project for 51 school children called, “Keep Clean and Stationary Distribution Programme.” They put on a demonstration for the students on how to properly wash their hands and brush their teeth, and also provided each student with stationary and a bag filled with personal hygiene products.

Preston’s Blog: ANZI-Pacific Forum Down Under

Author: Leave A Comment

This year, the ANZI-Pacific Forum was held in Adelaide, Australia on August 29th through the 31st. It truly was a “Passport to Excellence.” I was privileged to formally open the Forum and spread the message to Strengthen the Pride. Not only did I enjoy some great musical entertainment, but I also got to be the entertainment. Everyone was on their feet singing and dancing along with Joni and me. We had a great time!

Lions ANZIPac FORUM -SATURDAY 177Though you may not have been with me in Adelaide, I am still encouraging you, Lions, to Strengthen the Pride through service, strengthening your club and creativity. This October is Membership Growth month, so I am urging you to Ask One. If every Lion asked just one person to join their club, imagine how much more we could do!

Join with me in helping to Strengthen the Pride!

Feeding Program in the Philippines

Author: 2 Comments

Today’s guest blogger from the Ormoc Supreme Lions Club in the Philippines talks about the new hunger project they have started and the impact it is making in their community. Hunger Projects work towards our goal of serving 100 million people by 2017 as part of the Centennial Service Challenge. Don’t forget to record your activities on MyLCI.

It has been nine months since Super Typhoon Haiyan hit the Visayas Area in the Philippines and our city, the City of Ormoc, was one of those mostly affected. Our city and our lovely homes were not only affected, but also our economy and our livelihood. Most of our brothers and sisters struggle to find work and to feed their families because there is no more food/financial assistance to be received from the government and other various organizations. Many of the children who are victims of the super typhoon are malnourished because their parents don’t have enough money to buy nutritious food to help them grow healthy and strong.

 

So, on September 7, 2014 we started our “Feed a Child Program” to assist the victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan. Through this program, we feed the children in our area twice a month for nine months. We know we will have a small impact on the children, but we will have a big impact on the community — one where they know that the Ormoc Supreme Lions Club and the Ormoc Ultimate Lions Club care for the children in their community. Through this, we give them hope that we, Lions Clubs, are always there to help the less fortunate.
