Dear Club Presidents & Secretary,
The Lions Recycle for Sight/Gift of Sight (LRS/GOS) Team is one of the project teams of Lions SaveSight Centre (Singapore). The team started from recycling used spectacles to providing local and overseas vision screenings. Every year, the team travels to neighbouring countries to provide free vision screenings for the needy villagers there. We have carried out vision screenings in Siam Reap, Cambodia in 2014/2015 and BenTre Province, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam in 2016.
This year, the team comprising 30+ Lions volunteers and 5 non-Lions optician/optometrists will be travelling to Quang Ninh Province (2hrs drive from Hanoi) to do eye screening for about 2000 needy villagers.
The team will be partnering with the Sweden Uongbi Hospital (Vietnam), Hanoi Medical University and Essilor Vision Foundation. In order to achieve our eye screening mission, apart from our Lions and non-Lions volunteers, we need to invite opticians, optometrists or eye doctors so that they are able to carry out special eye related screenings for the needy villagers.
In the past, our LRS/GOS team paid for their own air tickets, accommodation, food and transport. However, this year, to encourage specialist eye care personnel to participate, we would like to subsidise a part of the cost incurred by each.
Below are the 2 items we intend to subsidise:
a) Budget air tickets for up to 5 Singaporean optician/optometrists
b) 2-day food & accommodation for 12 Hanoi Medical University student optometrists and 3 supervision optometrists.
We hope to raise S$9,000 for the above 2 expenditures. I sincerely appeal to all of you for your kind donations which will play a significant role to add value to the lives of the 2000 needy villagers of Quang Ninh province.
** All donations will be properly documented and submitted to our main group, Lions SaveSight Centre (Singapore).
I believe that your kind donations will help us to achieve our mission to provide better vision to the needy villagers and make a difference in their lives. Kindly send cash donations to our LRS Treasurer William Chua (Fullerton) or Cheque to Lions SaveSight Centre (Singapore).
Thank you for your kindness and generosity. If you have any queries regarding our Gift-of-Sight project, you may contact me directly at +65 97977816 or firstname.lastname@example.org
