Dear Fellow Lions,
Namaste! I would like to inform you all that our Past President and current Zone Chair Lion Tilak Sunar and Lion Paul Wagner will represent our District as well as they are only two from the entire California to a mission to Peru lion insight program. So it’s a greatest opportunity to attend such program and serve the needy people through Lions Clubs International.
On behalf of Lions Club of Berkeley Annapurna I would like to wish him safe journey and experience great service opportunity through Lions Clubs International.
He will be attending one of the biggest Lions Project funded by LCI California and Nevada. There will be 28 volunteers including 10 Eye Doctors and other Medical Technicians for vision screening and replacing eye glasses.
The team will be leaving for Lima Peru on 22nd April 2016 for special 5 days Eye Clinic and eye glass distribution program. According to LCI California and Nevada 5000 – 7000 patients will be benefited from this special program. They will be distributing completely free eye glass after absolutely free eye exam and prescribed by the team of Doctors. According to Lion Tilak Eye clinics will be 5 days in suborn city of Capital city of Peru.
He further informed that they will be spending another 5 days for visiting to machu-picchu – world famous lost city – and world heritage site. Their total stay will be for 13 days in Peru Lima and Macchu Picchu. This is a greatest and first service project led by our Past President and lets wish him a great service experience and if any one of our members interested for such service project please do not forget to get in touch with Lions in Sight Program. The Lions in sight is dedicated to bringing basic eye care and eyeglasses to a world of people in need. The mission of Lions In Sight is to promote the collection of used eyeglasses for the purpose of recycling and use in developing nations worldwide and to provide no cost primary eye care to the needy and low-income citizens in economically disadvantaged countries.
So interested Lions Please do not forget to visit all the activities of Lions Clubs and join Districtwide service projects, eye glass cleaning project, health fair and get training to handle Spot Vision Screening Camera and other service projects. For more information please join us District Convention of in Middletown from May 12 to 14th 2016.
It will be a great experience for Lion Tilak as well as entire team of our club since we have already planned to start vision screening project from our Club and we have already initiated to get our own Spot Vision Screening Camera which is expected to get shortly. The Club has already submitted the check of $3500 to District to initiate for the spot Vision Camera and hopefully our Club will be leading similar project to Nepal in 2017.
