I want to share my La Union LD Lions Club story of helping others be aware of Diabetes and how to focus on fighting the deadly disease.
I come from a family who suffers from Diabetes. I can relate, as I can see the effects of having it and how my family suffers from it.
As a service project to the community, in Brgy. San Jose Sur, Agoo and Brgy. Cabaroan, in La Union Province, Philippines, La Union LD Lions Club led World Diabetes Awareness Day 2022 in active participation of La Union Host Lions Club and San Fernando City Lions Club on Nov. 13 and 19, 2022.
We conducted free diabetes screening, blood pressure check, distributed 800 pcs of multivitamins and 500 pieces of facemasks, 200 pcs of assorted breads, 200 bottles of mineral water, and served home-cooked chicken macaroni soup. These preparations were all for humanitarian service in support of the World Diabetes Awareness 2022 projects in the 2 Barangays with 200 recipients and volunteers altogether. This project is a leap that prevention is better than treatment alone.
La Union LD Lions Club headed by President Windy Panelo Vazquez is determined to fight and win against diabetes.
Showing kindness to others that we care is important.
Winning it together will make a difference.
