Lion Care

(Since June 2011)

“Lion Care” is a project by the Lionheart Society which is focused on providing free medical check up for unprivileged children. Many Thai underprivileged children do not have access to proper nutrition since early childhood. This in turn had caused many malnutrition-related health issues including stunted growth and lack of sufficient immunity, making some of them prone to diseases.

Our Aim

With “Lion Care” project, we aim to coordinate our efforts with the Thai Red Cross Society in providing periodic medical attention to children in need later on. We believe that having been provided with a solid foundation of good health, many of the children will be spared from possible afflictions later in their lives, thus reducing future financial burden on them and families.

Member’s Personal Thoughts & Experiences

It has always been our objective to bring change to others most especially to those who are less fortunate than us. There had been a few occasions where we were invited to entertain children form Klong Toie Slums. These children did enjoy their visit toHarrowbut we wanted to give them something more. We courageously proposed a health check-up by theVejthaniHospitalstaff. Luckily, they agreed on helping us in this project and were very supportive to our group. By acting as trainee paramedics, it gave me a sense of pride and dependability.

On 18th June, doctors fromVejthaniHospital came toHarrow to give underprivileged children free medical check-ups, as health is one of The Lionheart Society’s priorities. This was the beginning of the Lion Care Project. Throughout the day I saw children with various health conditions examined by professional doctors where I assisted them as a trainee paramedic. While working with the doctors, they enlightened me with lots of medical knowledge such as how to recognize symptoms of a particular disease – I found this quite fascinating! All in all, it was a great day.

VejthaniHospitalwas kind enough to send some doctors to come and check-up the children from Klong Toie Slum. It was quite interesting because we were surprised at some of the children’s very poor health. This was indeed a great experience and it has surely given me more knowledge on how to examine a child’s health in order to diagnose any diseases.
