Memorandum of Understanding between Lions Clubs MD301 Philippines and Special Olympics Philippines (SOP) Signed.
Chairperson George L. Yuquico, MJF of State Council of Governors in the Multiple-District 301 (Philippines) recently signed a Memorandum of Agreement between Lions Clubs Philippines and Special Olympics Philippines held at Edsa Shangri-La Hotel to forge a partnership and make Lions the exclusive volunteers for the Opening Eyes Program. Lions Clubs strong networking in the Philippines will source out new athletes and establish provincial programs to benefit the intellectually disabled throughout the country.
The event will open the opportunity for the intellectually disabled to have a year-round sports training and competition for children and adults with mental retardation. This will give population opportunities to develop their physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in the sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
Currently, there are 200 accredited Special Olympics programs in 160 countries. Through a grant from the Lions Clubs International Foundation, Special Olympics and Lions Clubs International are now partnering to expand the Special Olympics vision health program. This collaboration is tripling the efforts scope under a new name: the SPECIAL OLYMPICS LIONS CLUBS INTERNATIONAL OPENING EYES PROGRAM. Together, these two organizations will bring proper eye care to more Special Olympics athletes around the globe, and will also open the worlds eyes to the reality that people with mental retardation deserve the same quality vision care to which every person is entitled.

BRIEF HISTORY OF LIONISM IN THE PHILIPPINES
It was before the Second World War that the idea of introducing Lionism in the Philippines was first conceived by the "old timer" Col. G. J. Oden, USA (retired). The idea was well taken by his friend and mentor Atwood Lawrence, but it was only acted upon during the 1948 Lions Clubs International Convention in New York City, USA when the International Officers decided to organize Lions Clubs in the Philippines.
Early in 1949, Lawrence came to the Philippines to start organizing the Lions Clubs. He was introduced to Federico Calero, a realtor, who became the moving spirit in aiding Lawrence in his work. Calero later became the first Provisional District Governor of Lion District 301 Philippines.
Lionism was formally introduced in the Philippines when the 1st club, the Manila (Host), was organized in March 23, 1949 with Francisco Ortigas, Jr. as its Charter President with 23 members and was sponsored by Hawaii Lions Club.
Soon after, the spirit of Lionism started to spread. Within weeks after organizing the first club, a second club Rizal (Pasay) City Lions Club was organized on April 16, 1949 with Dr. Juan Salcedo as its Charter President. The 3rd club, Quezon City Capitol Lions Club was organized on May 27, 1949 and Hon. Nicanor Roxas was elected President. On June 19, 1949 the 3 clubs held their Joint Charter Night at the Manila Hotel.
Lionism in the Philippines continued to grow tremedously. As of October 31, 2005, there were more than 10,600 members in 380 Lions Clubs in the Philippines grouped into seven Districts.
