WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER
I had a dream three years ago to prepare myself for this District Governor job. However, we never thought of the outbreak of a disease that would cause such a great impact to mankind. Neither could I or anyone have imagined and predicted it. And yet everyone has been affected by it, including Lions.
In these unprecedented and challenging times, amidst the post Covid-19 challenges, I want you to know that I am still motivated & confident and I will do my best to lead our beloved District 308 B1. I am doing everything I can to continue the Lions movement in our mission of serving our communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs. However, due to this outbreak, we need to change the ways we do things and the way we serve the community. We need to be more creative to protect the health & safety of the needy & also ourselves.
Thank you so much to all Lions members in this District that had shown so much loving & caring attitude. We noticed that during the outbreak, despite being subject to restrictions in movement control order (MCO), Lions still work with the relevant authorities such as PDRM, RELA & local councils to serve the needy community. Many Lions also came forward to provide face masks & PPE to the frontlines like medical team & PDRM.
We recognize these are the challenging times for many. For those who need to take care of themselves or their loved ones, this is your deserved priority. For those who are still able to help others, this is the time we should step-up and continue to do our part. I urge all Lions who still can afford time, energy & financially to come forward to support the District in our mission to serve the needy. Meanwhile my cabinet team is doing everything possible to control costs of operation while continuing to provide our most efficient support to all Clubs & all Lions. Let us work together as a team to bring our District to a greater height in this fiscal year.
Last but not least, I wish to record my sincere appreciation to all sponsors and donors that supported our District fund despite the cancellation of District Governor Inauguration (DGI) dinner. I also wish to extend my sincere gratitude to all DGI committee members that worked very hard, contributed their valuable time & effort in the publication of this booklet.
BE A LOVING LION
