Lions Club offers assistance for woman’s medical care


Members of the Lions Club of Antigua presented two airline tickets to Ms. Keri Charles who will undergo surgery in Jamaica on Monday 10th September to remove kidney stones.  Ms. Charles will be accompanied by her sister Ms. Aurlene Lake.

When the Lions Club was contacted about Keri’s situation the Health, Civic and Social Improvement Committee Chairperson Lion Virgil Daniel MJF and Lion Gladston Joseph MJF immediately visited her to investigate the situation.  The Lions were told that she has been suffering with her sickness for a few years and most times is unable to work; she is presently on a lengthy sick leave and has missed two previous appointments because she could not afford the cost of the tickets.

A couple of hours after the investigation concluded Ms. Charles received a telephone call from the Lions Club informing her that they will donate the two tickets to Jamaica.

During the presentation, an overly excited Ms. Charles expressed her profound gratitude for the timely assistance the Club has offered.  She thanked the Club’s president Lion Davidson Charles and all the members and said that someday she too will like to become a Lion club member, so that she can assist other less fortunate people.  Lion Virgil Daniel MJF on behalf of the president and members of the Lions Club wished Ms. Keri Charles safe travels, a successful surgery and a speedy recovery.
