Compassion is important

Our club was formed in 1963. In 2011, the three clubs of Kobe Suma, Kobe Maiko, and Kobe Ichinotani merged to become the current Kobe Suma Lions Club, and in 2011 it celebrated its 10th anniversary. To commemorate this, under the chairman’s theme of “Responding to Change,” we presented “Snoezelen Supplies” to Hyogo Prefectural Children’s Hospital on February 9. At our hospital, children are fighting against childhood cancer, but due to the effects of the new coronavirus infection, they have not been able to experience healing. Under such circumstances, it was implemented by utilizing the LCIF district and club sharing grants.
Snoezelen is a therapy for people with autism and other developmental disabilities, dementia or brain injury. It consists of placing the person in a soothing and stimulating environment, called the “Snoezelen room”.
