THE Lions Clubs International District 204, Region 2 distributed care packages to 86 households on Saturday.

It was the third round of distribution for community members affected by the Covid-19 crisis on Saipan, Lions marketing and community chair Mario Mayuga said.

Club members provided bowl noodles and butane canisters to the households, he added.

The recipients are guest workers, local residents and individuals from other ethnic groups.

Mayuga expressed appreciation to the donors including Lions from Guam, District Gov. Fely Angel, zone chair Blanca Imbo, and assistant cabinet secretary Rose Moore.

The donors from Saipan were Saipan Fil-Am Lions Club members Jean Pumatong, Socorro Huliganga, and Mario Mayuga himself.

“We provide assistance to the community using whatever available funding there is — all of us are affected by this crisis,” Region 2 chair Annamae Adaza said.

“Kindness and generosity in times like this really matter,” she added.

District 204, Region 2 is composed of six clubs: the Saipan Fil-American Lions Club under the leadership of  Eden Mercado; the Saipan Unity Lions Club headed by Elizabeth Escober; the Saipan Marianas Lions Club with Ladyvir Canape in the lead; the Saipan Alliance Lions Club led by Danny Robles; the Saipan Natibu Lions Club presided over by Manny Castro; and the Saipan Centennial Lions Club helmed by Arceli Lizama.

Adaza said each club is autonomous and conducts its own fundraising activities and projects, but all clubs can work as one as well, she added.

Earlier this month, the Lions assisted 30 families that each received a $35 voucher to purchase food and other necessities.
