In an interview with

donation also formed part of their 25th anniversary celebration of
the club in Ghana. 

Mr Ayivor said the
club, made up of professionals of varying backgrounds, was committed to
dedicating their time, talent and treasure to serve humanity.

He said: “In our bid
to serve humanity, we have dedicated the month of May every year to provide a
list of drugs for patients here at the facility in consultation with the
matron.”

According to the Club
President, the annual donation had been consistent in the past five years,
saying the “club also perform eye screening, health screening and community
service including general cleaning every month of the year”.

Mrs Vivian Shadrof,
matron of the Help Age Ghana centre, who received the items expressed their
gratitude to the club for their timely aid and kind gesture.

She hoped that other
institutions would emulate the gesture and promised that they would put the
donation to good use.

Ms Ethel Boakye, the
Administration and Media Coordinator at Help Age Ghana said the LIONS club had
been donating drugs to the Help Age Ghana every year, which they distributed to
their various day care centres across the country.

Ms Boakye called on
other institutions to help the aged with funding as the Non-Governmental
Organization was committed to caring for the aged in societies in the country.

She indicated that
Help Age Ghana faces challenges such as inadequate drugs for the aged in their
centres.

Help Age is a
non-governmental organisation established in 1988 and affiliated to the Help
Age International based in the United Kingdom.

Help Age Ghana is a
global network of age care organisations to promote the prospects of older
persons in the Ghanaian society. It aims at creating public awareness on ageing
issues and the problems facing older persons.
