Historic Rains Cause Massive Flooding In Japan
As many of us were returning from the 101st annual Lions Clubs International Convention, Lions from Japan were welcomed home by historic rains in the southwestern part of their country. The massive amount of rain – 14 inches in only two hours – caused immense flooding. Many people lost their lives, others lost their homes, and millions of people have been evacuated.
We know Lions everywhere join us in sending their thoughts and prayers to residents in the flooded area.
As rain continues to fall, Lions in Japan are providing relief in the way of much-needed supplies to people who have been evacuated.
Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has approved US$300,000 in designated disaster funding to assist local Lions in their quick response to this disaster.
The generous support of Lions allows LCIF to provide disaster relief funding at a moment’s notice. That is why it is important for you to support LCIF by donating to our newest and most ambitious fundraising initiative, Campaign 100: Empowering Service.
The most ambitious fundraising effort in LCIF’s history, the goal of Campaign 100 is to raise US$300 million to bolster our service impact and fund the needs of an ever-changing world.
Please consider making a donation to Campaign 100 so we may continue to answer the call when and where we are most needed.
