Lions Clubs International’s commitment to disaster relief goes back to the beginnings of the organisation. Whenever and wherever disasters strike, Lions are often among the first to offer aid, and LCIF always lends a financial hand to them.
Working together, LCIF, local Lions and Lions leaders assess the urgent needs and quickly deliver the aid most required by victims. The help is provided at grassroot levels, this is why te model has proven to be effective. When the south-east Asia tsunami affected millions and Lions sprung to action as soon as they could. The southern part of India was also heavily affected and surely enough Lions were one of the first to reach there. Disaster can affect anywhere, whether it’s halfway around the world or right at home. In the past 10 years LCIF with the help of generous donations from members and non members has been able to provide $100 million to disaster relief programs carried out by local districts worldwide.
Each Lion is a self-motivated server to humanity
