Lions Making a Difference

Louay is a 13 year old boy who needed a large Rifton Dynamic Pacer at a cost of $8,155. The purchase of his walker was funded by The Lions Clubs of Parramatta, Sydney, Chinese, Lugarno, Greenacre, Balgowlah, City of Ryde, Carlingford-Dundas, Arthurs Vale and Manly.

Louay enjoys being upright with his siblings. He has recently started initiating steps and will benefit from being able to engage in family outings in an upright position. He will also utilise the frame at school to engage in learning and play.

His mum was very appreciative of the sponsorship of the Sydney Lions and could not thank them enough.

Cooking for the Nurses

Every few months we cook dinner for the NSW Nurses and Mid Wives Association (https://www.facebook.com/nswnma/).

From the money raised we are able to support the Nurses Scholarship Foundation (http://www.nswnma.asn.au/the-lions-nurses-scholarship-information) . The scholarship allows nurses to further their education and we all benefit from this.

Thanks to the Lions that volunteer their time in making this happen.

Lions Club of Carlingford-Dundas

Voice of Youth Public Speaking Competition

A public speaking competition which aims to encourage school students from Years 7 and/or 8 in the local area to develop confidence and experience in public forums has been conducted by the Lions Club of Carlingford-Dundas annually since 2011. The Lions Club was very grateful to OLMC, Parramatta which provided the venue and refreshments for the 2018 competition held on Thursday, 16 August.

Thirteen students presented from Catherine McAuley Westmead, Cumberland High School, Normanhurst Boys High School, OLMC Parramatta, Parramatta Marist, Redeemer Baptist School and TARA Anglican School for Girls.

Competition is usually very tight and this year's was no exception. Both the Winner, Cristobal Corvalan Sotomayor from Parramatta Marist, Westmead and the Runner-Up, Aiza Reshty from Catherine McAuley, Westmead were Year 7 students and came from the same campus.

The Club is very appreciative of TARA which has offered to host the 2019 competition, thus returning to where it all began in 2011.

In 1925 Helen Keller challenged Lions to be Knights
for the Blind. Today, Carlingford-Dundas Lions we’re privileged to visit the Lions NSW Eye Bank to see how that challenge is being met in 2018. The Lions NSW Eye Bank is now part of the NSW Organ & Tissue Donation Service, together with the NSW Bone Bank and the Australian Ocular Biobank. The results already achieved and the promise of things to come through research are difficult to comprehend In NSW today there is effectively no waiting list for corneal transplants or repair- technology allows sufficient donated corneas to be stored to meet demand! Parts of the eye that can’t be transplanted eg retina, are used for extraordinary research. Did you know that femur heads can be donated by persons who have had hip replacement,and the bone reused? Skin can be donated and used to treat burns and other traumas. Mothers electing to have a caesarean birth can donate the amnion which can be used in eye surgery and other open wound covering. Excuse the pun, but the visit to the Lions NSW Eye Bank was a real eye-opener.
A single person, you, me, pretty much anybody, has within them, the capacity to directly impact the life of up to 70 others. DONATE LIFE !
Thank you Pierre Georges, Tissue Donor Coordinator.
