Southern Africa and in particular the countries of Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe have been devastated by what has been described as “one of the biggest natural disasters” to hit the area. The full story of the devastation is slowly emerging on our TV screens.
As Lions we need to continue to actively demonstrate our support towards the worldwide response, and specifically that of LCIF through the Clubs in the affected areas. We have been in contact with LCIF to establish their response and have offered immediate support from the existing funds of MD 105 to respond to the need for clean drinking water. Both immediate and long-term support to recover from the Disaster will come from the LCIF Disaster Fund.
If your Club wishes to support the work of LCIF to assist the area devastated to recover then donations should be made payable to 'Lions Clubs International MD105 Appeal Fund', endorsed on the back with 'LCIF Disaster Fund' and forwarded to PDG Arthur Clenton in the usual way. These donations can also be sent to your District Treasurer for onward transmission to PDG Arthur Clenton.
A poster supporting this appeal, which can be used to support any public collection or fund raising event is available to clubs electronically via Districts, direct from MDHQ or the MD105 website (see attached) .
These Donations to the LCIF Disaster Fund do attract MJF recognition and count towards the Campaign 100 targets.
Personal donations can be made by members of the public, online via
