In conjunction with the Christmas season, members decided to hand out goodies to cancer children at University Malaya Medical Centre, PJ headed by OC Adelene Yew accompanied by Lions Jessie, Katherine & Josephine, joined by Zone 16 Chairperson Chwee Chee Onn. This cheer-up was made possible with the assistance of CARES [Childhood Cancer Society] and President Lily and some of their members were at hand to bring us around.
We arrived at noon and was brought to the CARES room where we prepared high five hand cut-outs and distributed color pencils, crayons and various art accessories for the children to do their artwork. Another team of university students went round bringing cheer by singing some lively songs. Not all the wards are accessible especially those who are sensitive to viral infection. We spent about 2 hours mingling with the children and their caretakers.
Our 34 Christmas goody bags had a Disney pillow, fruits, biscuits & stationery. Donations collected from CK Bodywork RM1,000, Lion Nelson RM100, Lion Irene RM200 and OC Adelene RM200 made this event possible.
