Latest: Lions Sight Savers Trust Appeal
Lions Sight Savers Trust Appeal
Lions clubs are invited to support the Sightsavers appeal: Vision for a Brighter Future.
During the global pandemic, Sightsavers continues to support vulnerable people in countries where their fragile health systems are struggling more than ever.
Donations should be sent to the District Treasurer by cheque, made payable to the District and endorsed on the back: ‘Lions Sight Savers’.
Over the last 40 years, Lions clubs have donated £3.9 million through Sightsavers to help prevent thousands of people across Africa and Asia from going blind.
More than 2.2 billion people worldwide are blind or visually impaired. Of these, over 1 billion people worldwide have conditions that could be prevented or treated.
One child who has been helped by Sightsavers is Lovemore. Before a local eye screening camp identified his need for sight-restoring cataract sugery, Lovemore was unable to walk outside his home without his grandmother’s help or run around and play with his friends. You can read more about Lovemore in the Vision for a Brighter Furture report:
