Book Restoration Project

The Lions Club Sliema National Library Book Restoration Project was launched in 2009 with the scope of funding the restoration of precious volumes and manuscripts held at the National Library. Apart from these restorations the Club purchased a Leaf Casting Machine which was presented to the Hon. Dolores Cristina Minister for Education. The project is ongoing.

Drug Awareness Campaign

which amounted to U.S.$18,000 in conjunction with Caritas Malta.

Organ Donation Campaign

Lions Club Sliema originated this campaign and in its first year 15000 people registered as donors. Due to the unavailability of some medical facilities, most of the organs are donated to other countries, whilst the Health authorities retain those organs that can be transplanted in Malta. This campaign is ongoing.

Restorations of Frescoes at St. Agatha Catacombs

This project whose cost totalled over U.S.$ 20,000 was one of the first projects of its kind to be undertaken in Malta. These frescoes date back to the 12th Century and are the tangible proof of the early Christianity in Malta. Due to their historic importance, leading world experts in the field regularly visit the frescoes.

Restoration of Religious Niches in Sliema

This major project was supported with a booklet on the subject together with a photographic exhibition.

Along with the other four Maltese Lions Clubs, the Club participated in the financing of the installation of equipment for the screening of patients suffering from Glaucoma, Cataracts, Diabetic Retinopathy and other Eye-related conditions in Government run Clinics.
