Project Description :
Our Club wanted to bring a very special and joyful day for the 137 orphans in Rumah Kanak-Kanak Sultanah Hajjah Kalsom, at Jalan Km 20 Jalan Pekan, Kuantan. On 18 September 2016 (Sunday) at 8.30am, 12 Lions, with more than 30 Friends of Lions (amongst them 10 are professional hair dressers) started a haircut session together with anti lice treatment. The process took about 2 full hours for all the 137 inmates.
Simultaneously there were very interesting games and telematches arranged for different groups of children. We brought in even some small animals like rabbits and cats. It then followed with party time, with plenty of food and drinks. There were also music and performances by some of our Lions and Friends of Lions. Every child was presented with a goodie beg of toys and delicacies. To make the occasion even happier, we hired a Clown to entertain the children and also an Ice Cream Van to give them a really good treat of ice cream. It was really an enjoyable and memorable day for everyone !
