World Water Day is an opportunity for Lions to focus attention on and raise awareness of the importance of fresh water across the globe. When Lions everywhere commit to a water project in their community — whether providing water pumps to people in need, raising funds to help a village on the other side of the world have access to clean water, or building rain barrels for community members to conserve water and protect the environment (a project featured in the video above) — Lions can truly make a global impact.
Lions Clubs International Foundation has awarded $3.7M for 127 clean water related projects, including water pumps, irrigation, water therapy, purification systems, potable water and countless water wells primarily in developing regions. LCIF has awarded another $353,000 for 19 sanitation related projects.
