City officials and Lions Club members at the donation ceremonyOn March 30, the members of District 300A3 of Lions Clubs International organized a wheelchair donation ceremony on the first-floor central lobby of Taipei City Hall.
The 300A3 District comprises E Shih Chi New Century Lions Club, Yang Guang Lions Club, Lian Bang Lions Club, Hua Tai Lions Club, Ya Tai Lions Club, Donghu Lions Club, Jing Yan Lions Club, and De Siao Lions Club.
To ensure that the wheelchairs are delivered to those who needs the equipment the most, the Department of Social Welfare (DSW) will help by drawing up a list of candidates by consulting with Taipei’s publicly-operated nursing homes and the community service centers across the city. A number of the donated wheelchairs will be allocated to Taipei City Haoran Senior Citizens Home, Taipei City Yangming Home for the Disabled, and several social housing communities as well.
Chairman Chen Shih-chan of E Shih Chi New Century Lions Club, who is also the initiator of the donation drive, noted that Lions Club has always been involved with large-scale social service activities. The gifting of wheelchairs targets mobility-challenged elders and disabled individuals, hoping that the equipment will assist them in maintaining healthy interaction with the community as well as easing the burden on their caretakers.
DSW Commissioner Yu-hsiu calls upon the public to treat the social welfare centers located at each of Taipei’s 12 administrative districts as a matchmaking platform for donated supplies. They enable a coordinated effort in the deployment of both charity goods and lunchboxes to those who really need the assistance. He also expressed his gratitude to the Lions Club members for their act of compassion.
