Hurricane Dorian Disaster Appeal

Hurricane Dorian damages houses in the Bahamas – taken by US Coast Guard Petty Officer, 2nd Class Adam Stenton

Hurricane Dorian was category 5 when it landed on the Grand Bahama Island over the weekend, with over 130 mile an hour winds and torrential rainfall.  Hurricane Dorian has destroyed homes, flooded communities and impacted on countless families and the threat continues as it heads towards the east coast of the United States.

Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) is working with Lions to provide immediate relief to those families who are struggling following the devastation of this hurricane.

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. 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, then donations should be made payable to ‘Lions Clubs International MD105 Appeal Fund’. On the reverse of cheques, please endorse with ‘LCIF Disaster Fund’ and forward to Lion Arthur Clenton in the usual way. These donations can also be sent to your District Treasurer/District Charities Treasurer for onward transmission to Lion Arthur Clenton. These Donations to the LCIF Disaster Fund do attract MJF recognition and count towards the Campaign 100 targets.
