The next meeting of the Cuenca English Lions Club

Good morning everyone,

The next meeting of your Cuenca English Lions Club (CELC) will begin Monday, September 7th, at 12:30 PM. The meeting of course will be of the virtual type using the Zoom app as our meeting place.

We are excited to announce that our guest speakers for this meeting will be Cuenca Optometrist Carlos Sanchez and Ophthalmologist Dr Giovanni Duran, with the presentation being led by club charter member Edouard Nadeau, Chairman of the CELC Vision Pillar. The presentation will include information regarding the serious vision issues prevalent among many of our young students in the Cuenca school system (CELC’s recent vision testing of over 2000 young students has determined that nearly 1/3rd of our school kids are suffering from some sort of impaired vision, making the ability to learn in an educational setting very difficult). Also to be discussed will be plans for attempting to address and to hopefully improve (with your help) this critical situation…a huge but most important undertaking.

The presentation will last under 10 minutes and will be followed by a question and answer period. For those guests who wish to participate in this important and most relevant discussion, please send a request to: to receive the appropriate Zoom access codes. CELC members can find the access codes located at the top of the website homepage - click "Zoom Link for General/Business Meetings".

Please also remember that during this all-encompassing crisis, your Cuenca English Lions Club is being very proactive in supporting those of our neighbors in dire need, especially as it relates to hunger and diabetic requirements. Please consider donating, knowing that every penny collected will be used to help those in critical need. To donate to the hunger project using PayPal, please use Write LIONS in the comment section and send as a personal transfer. Donations may also be made at JEP Cooperativo at: JEP bank account # 406109409401. The account name is Patrick Peregrino/Cuenca English Lions Club. Donations to the diabetes project may be made through a account created by Cuenca Lion Michael Churchman for Lions of Ecuador.

As we continue in this difficult year, there are many challenges facing our adopted city and country. The Cuenca English Lions Club is poised to address many of those issues, especially as they apply to Hunger, Diabetes and Vision. Please consider joining a group of highly motivated individuals who are committed to improving the lives of those less fortunate.

Thank You, and stay safe and healthy

September 7th, from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM, Virtual Meeting, Cuenca.
