Sleeping Children Around the World (SCAW)

Chairperson - Larry Bell






The guiding principle of this organization is

“That the basic right of every child is to have a comfortable night’s sleep.”


To that extent, we the DISTRICT A16 LIONS CLUBS donate money in order to buy BED KITS at a cost of $35.00 (Canadian).  These kits are produced locally in the country in which they will be distributed.  This does two things:


  1.   It gives employment/production in that region
  2.   It cuts down on costs, as the kits are directly delivered and manufactured there.


Teams from Canada (at their own expense) go to the location, assemble and deliver the kits to the children in over 34 countries.  By end of 2015, 1.4 million kits have been distributed.


Every dollar that you donate goes 100% to purchase these kits.  The administration of SCAW is funded from a LEGACY FUND setup by Murray & Margaret Dryden, the originators of SCAW.


Please consider making a donation by sending a cheque made payable to:

                        Lions District A 16

                        Mailed to the District Treasurer, Lion Gail Neiman

                        14A Centre St., P.O. #187, Millbrook, ON L0A1G0

                        In the memo line write: “SCAW”


Or you may want to dedicate an event (Spaghetti Dinner, Bake Sale, Card Night etc) to SCAW.


I am also available to talk to your club, or setup a display table.
