On 19th April 2018 the Lions Club of Kirstenbosch held their GBM focusing on the quest against blindness.
Blindness ranks amongst one of the five mission items of Lions Clubs International and at their meeting the members of the Lions Club of Kirstenbosch welcomed guests from the League of the Friends of the Blind (LOFOB) who outlined their annual Blind Buddy initiative.
Using all schools to participate on 25 May 2018 there will be a Blind Buddy Day Shades Parade. This initiative will encourage scholars to wear their sunglasses (shades) to school for the day. For this they will pay R10.00 for a Blind Buddy Sticker.
Lions Di Powell and PDG Sue Charles assisted at the Lions Club of Tokai’s first Wellness Day organised by Ikamva Labantu and the Enkuluekweni Community Centre in Khayalitsha on Wednesday, 28th February 2018. The Wellness Day was attended by 45 elderly residents of Khayelitsha.
Ten third year nursing students from the AZUSA Pacific Christian University in Lost Angeles tested for BMI, Height, Weight and random blood sugar and blood pressure checks whilst the two Jonga Trust Community workers did eye screening.
Lion Di took time to explain to the nursing students how the eye screening was done and PDG Sue conducted the administrative work.
The Lions Banner was prominently displayed.
Well done Tokai!
