About Lions – who we are and what we do
Lions Clubs International Foundation grants funds to aid humanitarian efforts that transform lives of people locally and around the world. In particular initiatives have helped over 30 million people to avoid serious vision loss. Named the world’s leading non-governmental organisation with which to partner by a Financial Times independent survey, Lions can be found helping wherever there is an environmental or humanitarian disaster.
We work with local authorities, health service providers, community groups and many other organisations to help identify and support those who will benefit from the assistance of Lions Clubs. We are proud to support disability games, create life-enhancing memorable moments, help those facing financial difficulties and participate in community celebrations in different cultures.
An extensive range of health-oriented initiatives are supported by Lions Clubs locally, nationally and internationally. In particular we support efforts to control and prevent diabetes, help the emergency services with Message in a Bottle, support blood cancer research and recycle used spectacles.
Lions Clubs are proud to be chosen as a partner by small, local organisations as well as major national and international companies, charities and humanitarian bodies. We help with fund-raising campaigns and logistical support to achieve things that would not happen without our help.
Lions apply talent, know-how and skills to support activities at the heart of local communities. We are creative, imaginative, resourceful and reliable. We get involved with community sports, fun-filled events, traditional fund-raising activities, carnivals, parades and all manner of seasonal initiatives.
