Strengthen your commitment to children through dignity, harmony and humanity.

“These wise words are very much in line with International Lions President Dr Jitsuhiro Yamada who is encouraging Lions to bring dignity to others by assisting vulnerable children in communities and throughout the world,” said District Governor Bokkie Oberholzer of District 410D.

A perfect example of achieving this commitment is when Community Development Initiatives International (CDII) situated in Pretoria and its We MiND Foundation (Despatch) was gifted a donation of linen by Town Lodge Menlo Park (Pretoria).

CDII decided to collaborate with both the Pretoria South and Uitenhage Lion Clubs to make the donation available to impoverished communities within Mamelodi (Pretoria) and to the StCuthbert’s Mission to Children affected by HIV/AIDS.

“The St Cuthbert’s Mission serves a Community where the breadwinners have died as a result of HIV/AIDS and orphaned children are left in the care of grandparents or older siblings. They work in conjunction with churches in Kwazakhele and Govan Mbeki in the Nelson Mandela Metropole,” said Lion Denis Murphy from the Uitenhage Lions Club.

“We as the Uitenhage Lions Club extend our sincere appreciation for making all of the above possible to Town Lodge Menlo Park (Pretoria), CDII and its We MiND Foundation Ambassador David Viljoen who is also associated with Friends of MND (Motor Neuron Disease),” said Lion President Juan Hay.
