Leprosy Project at Sungai Buloh Dated 30 Jan 2010

Jan 30, 2010 - Region 3 & 4 has organized the Sungai Buloh Leprosarium Visit (the world oldest leprosy centre/hospital - a community of people with leprosy) today. The visit is an annual joint project organized by Lions clubs in Region 3 & 4 and this year it is lead and organized by Region 3 Zone Chairman Eric Lee as our Loving Sunday project. The objective is to bring some joys to the patients there through our interaction and entertainment inconjunction with the coming Chinese New Year. It is indeed a very meaningful project and has been organized yearly since Lions Club of Kuala Lumpur North started it many years ago.

Lions Club of Kuala Lumpur North has sent a team of 42 including President Tan Teoh, OC Wesley Er, PP Donald Lee, PP Raymond Kwong, Ln Yap Gris Som, PP Ben Sng, PDG Sam Leong, PDG Raymond Tang, PP Chong Chin Teck, 28 SMK Jinjang Leos lead by President Yuki and her faculty advisors - Ms. Low & Ms. Wong, and 3 KL Unity Leos lead by President Tan Eong Xien. The project started at 9 am at the Leprosy Centre Hall with various entertainment by Lions and Leos for the inmates followed by Choi San Ye distributing Oranges. We later proceed to visit the patients at the wards.

Our big delegates were divided into smaller groups visiting a few wards as well as helping up at the hall. We took charge for Female Ward 49 and supported KL South with our Leos at Ward 48. At the Ward, we entertained the patients at the wards by chit chating to them, entertaining them with Chinese New Year Songs and present them with Ang Pows, Mandarin Oranges and Goodie bags. The following are some of the photos taken during the project:


The project went well and successful. Many thanks to Zone Chairman Eric Lee and his committee for organising the project. We must also thank our OC Wesley for the coordination and PP Donald for his professional photograhy. Most importantly, our BIG delegates: Thank all of you - give yourselves a pad on your back. You have brought joys and happiness to the inmates there. I can see from their eyes while having conversation with them. My fellow Lions and Leos, we don't have to wait for another year - Do visit them whenever we can...
