Among the many types of community work that Lions do across the globe, providing clean water is one that makes a huge impact. There are many areas of the world that do not have access to clean water. A lack of clean water can lead to serious health issues and even death, which is why the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) offers grants that helps Lions bring clean water supply to those in need.
The above photo features members of the Palm Cotonou, Cotonou Dauphin and Castel Sant’Angelo Lions Clubs in Bénin, who developed a water supply for eight latrines in nearby communities with the help of LCIF.
