Seychelles Centennial Women Lions Club | 16 December 2019
Service to the community remains their motto
The Seychelles Centennial Women Lions Club has remained committed to serving the community in all possible ways. Since her induction in July this year, the Seychelles Centennial Women Lions Club President Mrs. K. Selvi Karunakaran and her team have been actively involved in various projects to promote the welfare of the community. The club is quite pleased to share some of theirstories for the last quarter below. The overwhelming support of volunteers and other organisations has inspired the club to remain focused on their goal of serving the community.
In July, the Club started with their first project by donating antifungal paint to refurbish and beautify the Au Cap Primary School Library. The Club also donated books for the school library. To commemorate the reading week, on 14th October, the Au Cap Primary School reopened the library after a short revamp thanks to materials donated by the Seychelles Centennial Women Lions Club. The library was reopened to students and teachers of the school. Club members were invited to attended the event and celebrate the new look and feel of the school’s fantastic library.
On 19 October, the Seychelles Centennial Women Lions Club organised a charity lunch for the residents of the Plaisance Elderly Home to show their appreciation and respect for their valuable contribution to society. A wheelbarrow was donated by the Club, to help them transport heavy items. On that day, the members were actively involved in giving oil massage therapy to the home’s residents. The residents also received gifts from the club.
The club has been giving financial support to many schools to build shelters for the School Garden Project, which would encourage students to make use of their time effectively and to protect the environment. The students of AnseBoileau School have made a huge success of the project. When the club members visited on 7th November, they were very happy to see how hard work from the students delivered such wonderful results.
