Donation/Tally cards which were given to each member to raise funds over a period of two months to aid the purchase of brail books and pointers for the blind students in the University of Cape Coast yielded about GHC 241.00. This is still on – going.

Our empty sachet project which is aimed at reducing the amount of plastic waste on UCC Campus and promoting recycling has been successful and we realised some money from the project to support the club’s financial base.


Three activities have successfully taken place since the last Zone meeting in Cape Coast.  On the 12th of October 2011, the club and our sponsoring LIONS, Crystal Lions Club had an eye screening activity for pupils of Montessori School complex in Cape Coast. This was to commemorate the World Sight Day. It was held in collaboration with the Optometry Department of the University of Cape Coast. Eight LEOs and two prospective LEOs were as present for this activity. In all, 148 pupils were screened; 101 pupil had normal eyes, 44 pupils had problems which include; 35 refractive errors, 8 suspicious disc and 1 corneal capacity. Those with problems were referred to the Central Regional Hospital for further examination and treatment. The entire activity lasted for about three and half hours.

Some members were also present at the world sight day symposium on Thursday 13th October, 2011 at the University of Cape Coast Auditorium on the theme: “TEAM APPROACH TO ACHIEVING VISION 2020”.

Together with the Crystal Lions Club, the club also had a tree planting activity at the Harris School Complex on the 22nd of October, 2011. A total of trees 150 trees were planted. Ten LEOs and four Prospective LEOs were also in attendance. This activity lasted for six hours at a cost of GHC 26.00.

Again, the club engaged in a donation to the inmates of New Life International Orphanage, Ansapetu in Cape Coast. The Club made a donation of food items, toiletries, stationeries and assorted clothing. Members of the Nyansapow LEO Club interacted with the children and the care takers of the orphanage.

Club members also took the opportunity to tour the facilities at the orphanage while playing with the children. This five-hour activity was at a cost of GHC 65.00.


We are also very grateful to our sponsoring LIONS Club, Cape Coast Crystal LIONS Club. They have been very supportive in our projects and activities with valuable advice and financial assistance. We salute you all. Thank you.
