At Teresita Village, we have renovated cabins and the dining hall to further our mission of providing accessible facilities to serve campers with special needs. A new system of accessible concrete pathways connects seven ADA accessible cabins with the dining hall, swimming pool, archery range, play field, campfire and chapel. The pathways can be used by campers in wheelchairs and have tactile indicators to assist the blind and vision impaired.
The Orange County Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Rooms provide a comforting “home away from home” for the families of seriously ill children receiving treatment in Orange County hospitals.
Health Programs that Focus on Vision, Diabetes and More
Lions are known as “knights of the blind,” focusing on programs and services for the blind and visually impaired – and aim to eliminate preventable and reversible blindness. But we also participate in other community programs and projects.
- Lions support local and large-scale global health programs to prevent and control diabetes, a growing world epidemic, and diabetic retinopathy, the leading cause of blindness in middle-aged adults.
- Lions help to fight hunger around the world through activities that include food drives, school lunch programs, provisions of food at soup kitchens and homeless shelters, support of global food banks and more.
- And around the world, many Lions service projects have an impact on health.
