Lions Clubs – Ready to Help, Worldwide
Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.
The World's Largest Service Club Organization
Our 46,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world's largest service club organization. We're also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat and with people we may never meet.
(LCIF) supports and develops programs that serve people in need throughout the world. With the dedication and work of Lions, LCIF is able to improve millions of lives through our high-impact initiatives.
Our programs are focused in 4 main areas:
Since 1990, SightFirst has been making quality eye care accessible to those who most need it. SightFirst has made it possible for more than 30 million people to have improved or restored vision.
Over the past 25 years, 12 million young people in 72 countries have benefited through Lions Quest, our youth development program for kindergarten through 12th grade.
Providing Disaster Relief
In times of disaster, Lions meet immediate needs such as food, water and shelter with funds from LCIF. For larger-scale disasters, the Foundation remains committed to helping communities rebuild into the future.
LCIF is active in a variety of humanitarian efforts such as supporting the construction homes for the disabled, providing vision screenings to Special Olympics athletes and combating measles.
