1 Lions SaveSight Centre (Singapore) The Singapore Lions answer to our Lions Clubs International No. 1 global service program on Sight Preservation, Sight Preservation, Awareness & Action

2 Honorary Lion Professor Arthur Lim Founder Chairman, LSSC Numerous international reports have emphasized that millions of Asians in the developing countries will be stricken with poverty and starvation, often without education, without shelter, without health and without vision. The Lions Clubs International combined with the Lions Clubs of Singapore have taken an important decision to move forward to help by restoring good vision to those blind from cataract or corneal opacities and prevent blindness for the victims of diabetes and glaucoma. A group of dedicated Singaporeans has initiated the Lions SaveSight Centre (Singapore) and we hope to attract thousands of supporters to work with us. We pray that the Lions and our more fortunate Singaporeans will join us to help serve the poor. Let us always remember “Our skills and money are of value only if used to benefit the less fortunate.”

3 HOW LSSC WAS STARTED?

6 On the LSSC Logo In 1925, the legendary Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become “Knights of the Blind in the crusade against darkness”. Since then, the Lions around the world, took the challenge and today Lions Clubs International is best known for our fight to eliminate preventable and reversible blindness amongst the many humanitarian activities and programs.

7 This original LSSC Mascot is designed by NUS YLL medical student, Ms Cheryl Tan. The rationale of adopting the LSSC Mascot is to allow the general public to relate the centre with the Lions movement. In the near future, you would see this mascot as souvenirs, soft toys and other publicity materials.

31 “The Lions SaveSight Centre (Singapore) is set-up to provide patients with chronic eye diseases requiring long-term eye care with quality step-down eye care in the most cost-effective setting to minimize waiting time and costs to these patients, but most importantly, save sight by screening, early diagnosis and referral for treatment to prevent disease progression and visual loss.” - said Honorary Lion Professor Donald Tan

32 “When as a result of escalating cost, millions of the neglected people of Southeast Asia continue to suffer the misery of blindness, at a time when modern ophthalmic care can ensure good vision for all at low cost, I appeal for action, for change. Our skills and money are of value only if used to benefit the less fortunate.” - said Honorary Lion Professor Arthur Lim

33 “The world is full of suffering. It is also full of overcoming. Of all senses, SIGHT must be the MOST IMPORTANT. Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much. It is terrible thing to see and have no vision.” - said Helen Keller
