Every year, all Lions Clubs worldwide, organize free screenings for glucose testing and actions of prevention, treatment and control of Diabetes.

Members of Lions Club Ploiesti “served” unselfishly and with “pride”, de Diabetes Community in Prahova County, helped by Ploiesti Municipality, Medical School “Toma Ionescu”, Prahova Association of Diabetes. On the occasion of World Diabetes Day, Thursday, 14 November 2014, between 08:00-10:00, were done free blood glucose testing within the campaign “ Appreciate Life”, campaign aimed at all people  regardless age or social status.

Our Club supports local efforts to control and treat diabetes, and fights for EDUCATION, PREVENTION, CARE and RESEARCH in this area.

This year, at Ploiesti, there were made about 85 free glucose screening. The event was held at Casa Sindicatelor, and the majority of those tested were elderly people. Ill or not, they were carefully consulted by the nurses and received advice on how to prevent or control the disease from the members of the Association of Diabetics Prahova.

The objectives of this screening were:

-helping at local / national / worldwide level diabetics;
-increasing life expectancy and quality of life of diabetes patients through their guidance, if not aware of, to a specialist;
-creation of a medical research center in the field of diabetes;
-getting recognition as a public utility;
-maintaining regular contact with national and international organizations on the organization results and work strategy for the future;
-creation of a center for information and support members in accordance with Romanian legislation and consistent with international standards of the International Organization of Health;

We are glad of the increasing magnitude of this event in Prahova County, and that we, Lions members  have been ,and are part of this project, through  which we serve the community!


Lions Clubs International is the largest humanitarian service organization in the world, made up of people with a recognized moral and social position, able to improve the fate of the poor, united by friendship and animated by the desire to serve.
