NEW FRIDGE DONATED TO ORION CENTRE FOR THE DISABLED

The Orion Centre for the disabled and in particular the children’s sector was in much need of a Fridge for their food storage.  For years they have battled with a rusty old hand-me-down that did not even have shelves inside and it grieved us to witness the limitations with their old for their food storage. 

The Table View Lions donated a New fridge to the Centre and the resident children exclaimed their appreciation with this photo for Lions contribution to their Centre.

– Lion Mal Munian

The hearing aids donation project at the Table View Lions Club, in conjunction with our twin Lions Club Frankenthal in Germany, provides needy deaf children in South Africa with new and second-hand/reconditioned hearing aids. This life changing project provides thousands of under-privileged deaf children with the opportunity to develop, and live normal lives with these essentially required hearing aids.

Since its inception in 2011 this Table View Lions Club Hearing Aid Project donated hearing aids to the value of close to ZAR10 million ($1,0 million).

The Table View Lions project co-ordinators for this project are Gisela Weitz and Dylin Kuni.

STOP HUNGER NOW – FOOD PACKING

http://www.stophungernowsa.org/

Stop Hunger Now provides meal packages to the needy.

Key to the programme is a series of meal packaging events, where volunteers package the meals.

The meals are highly nutritious and comprise of rice, soya, dehydrated vegetable mix and a fortification pack of 23 essential minerals and vitamins specifically formulated to combat malnutrition (complying with the UNICEF standard).

The Food Packing Sessions are hosted by various organizations (Including Lions Clubs) and the ingredients are provided by Stop Hunger Now.

Volunteers form teams at various tables and each table has a set task. For instance

Table1 – measures the right amounts of the ingredients.

Table2 – weighs the bags from table 1 and makes sure they fall within a tolerance

Table3 – takes the bags from table 2 and seals them

Table4 – takes the sealed bags and labels them

Table5 – takes the labelled bags and packs them in a box.

Finally when the box is full it is weighed to make sure that it contains the correct number of bags.

As each table requires at least 3 volunteers it can be seen that many volunteers are needed. There can also be more than 1 “production line” each requiring the same number of volunteers.

As the morning progresses there is a lot of interaction between people and great fun is had.

A single session of food packing will last about 3 hours.

It is well worth attending one of these sessions as you feel that you have achieved something at the end.

Attached photos show Lions Liz, Sue and John kitted out and ready to work and Lions Liz and Sue hard at work measuring the weights of the packets.
