Sint Maarten Lions Club donates eyeglasses to students.

lionseyeglasses01092021PHILIPSBURG:--- The Sint Maarten Lions Club donated a pair of eyeglasses to two students from two primary schools on Saturday last. The two proud recipients were 8-year-old Dulcianna Browne of Sister Borgia school group 5 (grade 3), and Nehemiah de Weever of Marie Genevieve de Weever school of group 4 (grade 2) primary schools. Making the presentation was President of Sint Maarten’s Lions Club Ms. Linette Gibs and Chairman of the Health Committee Lion Richard Gibson Jr. and Lion Oralie Boirard member of the Sint Maartens Lion Club Health Committee, who were able to make all the connections to make the project a reality.
“It was quite a joy to see the reactions on the face of the two students”, President of the Sint Maarten Lions Club Lion Linette Gibs told the small gathering consisting of parents and grandmother and members of the Lions Club. Also present at the presentation was District 60B Governor Lion Claudio Buncamper PMJF.
Both parents of the student’s expressed great joy and gratitude to the Lions Club for the donation to the students who were badly in need of having their glasses for the new school year. The Sint Maarten Lions club would also like to thank the St Maarten Vision center for their assistance and input last year by offering the club a total of 50 free eye-screening vouchers which were used for screening of students.
The Sint Maarten Lions Club is also grateful to fellow Lion colleague, Barbara Plaugher of the Lions Club in Ohio, who continues to assist our club via services of the Volunteer Optometric Vision Services to Humanity (VOSH) to have the prescriptions filled and mailed to Sint Maarten. Lion Barbara Plaugher is no stranger to Sint Maarten as she organized the trip to Sint Maarten in 2017 for the eye screening project for all primary school students.
One of the main objectives of the International Lions Club is, to sponsor and promote programs that deal with Sight Preservation and the Fight Against Blindness. This project combines the group efforts of the Lions Clubs and Eye Care Professionals to provide reconditioned, recycled eyeglasses, at NO COST, to uninsured people living in our community. Eyeglasses are also provided for Vision Projects to aid people in need throughout the world. Team members for these Vision Projects consist of Eye Care Professionals, members of the Lions Clubs, and laypersons, who work together to provide eye examinations and dispense reconditioned, recycled eyeglasses to those in need...all at no cost to the recipient.
