LQ: Lions in Japan Improving Lives
Many of our 46,000 Lions clubs help people with disabilities such as mobility for children who use wheelchairs and outings for the blind. With your assistance, Lions provide services that improve lives.
When we traveled to Japan to film this segment of LQ, our staff visited a facility that offers a range of activities for children and adults with disabilities. Made possible by Lion volunteers and a matching grant from the Lions Clubs International Foundation, the Taiko Lions Club Care Center provides vocational training and more. The Lions fund the project and also volunteer with the clients.
According to the Lions, it’s an incredibly rewarding experience to see the people served by this facility learning and growing. Hirokazu Ito, the parent of one of the adults said he is grateful the Lions provide such a vital program. “I believe they give him very, very good services here. He’s very happy to come here.”
