Karori Update

During the last 6 months we have collected 4.12 Kilos of foreign money plus $204.61 of old coins. We have also banked directly into the account $100.00 of current notes and coins. These amounts are slightly up on most previous updates so thank you Karori.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~An International Project~~~~~~~~~~

LEAP - Lions Empowering Albinos Programme

Lion Geoff Walker of Greytown Lions – New Zealand 202M and Gulu Lions Club – Uganda 411B, is being very active in seeking support for Children in the Acholi North, Uganda with the new LEAP programme which is aimed at the Albino population who are hidden away from the real world for no other reason than being a white colour amongst a black coloured race.

Karori Lions Club has committed to supporting one of the children financially which will assist with her optical, medical and education costs

*************************

Recycle for sight. Karori Lions takes your old discarded spectacles and sun glasses and has them reconditioned for those who need them - Special Olympians, Pacific Islands etc. Jennie went to Fiji with the clinical group this year and assisted in distributing glasses and sunglasses to those who required them.
