“The ISAAME forum is a great opportunity to meet each other, to exchange views, to share our opinions, to ensure mutual enrichment, fostering our friendship. We have come together to dream of a better humanity in conjunction with the vision of our founder Melvin Jones "You can't get very far until you start doing something for somebody else". We must love, listen, smile with, help and support the other in good as well as bad times. It is with this other that we are going to work towards building a better future for our humanity. The motto of Lions Clubs International is “we serve” it isn’t “I serve”, this “we”: includes all of us: all together we must serve humanity. It is man who must construct humanity. God has done everything, created everything. He has given us his love; given us the gift of life. It is our responsibility to look at it as our heritage and to share it. By way of sharing we can spread love, friendship and fraternity and construct a peaceful and happy humanity.”
