Lions Clubs Mobilizing US$6 Million, Working with Red Cross to Help Japan
With more than 107,000 members, Lions in Japan are able to provide immediate relief to victims of the recent earthquake and tsunami. Our Foundation has already received donations or commitments exceeding US$6 million to support these efforts, which includes US$3 million that the Lions of Japan are raising.
Lions in Japan also met with the Red Cross yesterday, and are now planning blood drives to address the great need for blood donations. In addition, Lions are receiving lists of needed supplies from the Red Cross and Lions in the affected areas, and have established four distribution centers. MD330 is coordinating the delivery of supplies donated by Lions to these centers.
