As rightly said by Mahatma Gandhi – “You may never know what results come of your actions, but if you do nothing, there will be no results” and as we Lions know that – ‘Whenever Lions come together, problems get smaller & communities get better that is because we help where help is needed.’
Lions Club of Powai works on the same lines. Powai has complex like Hiranandani at one side and slums on the other side. Repeated complaints of vision & dental problems of school children from in and around Powai area were received. Lions Club of Powai worked on this & marked six schools of its boundary and planned to have eye & dental checkup for the students of these schools.
The first school chosen was Gyanmandir Marathi School where children from a low income families come and due to, this or that reasons, are very careless for their health. Because of this a routine checkup was also conducted for these students along with the eye & dental checkup.
On 3rd October 2016 at 9 am, during the Service Week, the Lions Club of Powai scheduled this in the school auditorium and 500 students underwent this checkup. Eye glasses to 15 students and dental kit to 100 students with poor dental conditions were distributed on the spot.
Most of the very senior members of Lions Club of Powai like Lion T. A. Mani, Lion K. D. Singh, Lion (Capt) Sharma, along with the President Lion (Dr) Triloki Mishra, Secretary Lion (Commander) Sanjay Singh and others contributed to this activity physically and monetarily as per their capacity and worked hard for the success of the activity.
Lions Club of Powai has plans to organize the same activity for other five schools and take it as its goal to make school children free from dental problems with good physical health.
