District Chairperson, Helen Keller’s Day 2022, Lion Folasade Sanni-Lawal MJF, NLCF has urged clubs across the board to emulate more generous projects as June 2022 approaches.
In a brief message to Ikorodu News Network (INN), Lion Folasade stated that both symposiums and other skill acquisition programs can be adopted to foster community growth and development.
She continued, “In 1925, Helen Keller challenged the Lions to constitute themselves as “Knights of the Blind” in a crusade against blindness”.
“As a result, Lions Clubs International sponsors thousands of programs for the blind and visually impaired around the world each year”.
“Therefore June 1st has been dedicated to “Helen Keller Day 2022″ to celebrate Helen Keller and the legacy she has left behind”.
“As June draws closer, here are some Project ideas that you and your club can embark upon to celebrate the day”.
“Seminar on how to prevent blindness, Provision of white cane for visually impaired people, Provision of Braille machines or books for the use of visually impaired people and Special programs with the visually impaired people etc”.
“Remember, What a blind person need is not a teacher but another self. So lets Bond Together in Kindness” Lion Folasade asserted
