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
