Successful Measles Vaccination Campaign in Tanzania

Author: Leave A Comment

In October 2014, Tanzania carried out one of the largest public health interventions in the country’s history. In one short week, more than 20 million children were immunized in a measles and rubella vaccination campaign. Tanzanian Lions were active in the social mobilization planning process at the national and municipal level to ensure that high coverage would be achieved. During the campaign, Lions worked to educate parents on the dangers of measles and rubella and to encourage them to bring their children to vaccination camps to be immunized.  Activities included the production and distribution of more than 20,000 posters and banners, road shows to raise awareness in urban areas, hosting mini-campaign launch events to raise awareness and engage communities at the municipal level, and using radio, television, and print media to amplify awareness of the campaign.

Having Lions members in countries around the world that care about protecting children from measles and rubella is one of Lions’ greatest strengths as an M&RI partner and Lions social mobilization activities in their countries have made a contribution to the success of numerous vaccination campaigns.

Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) is an official partner of the Measles & Rubella Initiative. This collaboration has successfully reduced the number of measles-related deaths throughout the world. LCIF and Lions provide technical, financial and grassroots support for measles vaccination campaigns. Through this partnership, over one billion children have been vaccinated in more than 80 countries, reducing measles deaths by 90 percent in nearly all countries.

Donate today to help LCIF vaccinate even more children against measles and rubella!

Happy Children in Tanzania

Nepal Earthquake

Author: 3 Comments

Dear Lions,

Once again – nature has struck a devastating blow – this time in the form of a 7.9 magnitude earthquake in Nepal.

http://lcif.org/donate

As the global leader in humanitarian service, Lions Clubs International is uniquely qualified to provide immediate assistance. Already, LCIF has issued an major catastrophe grant in the amount of $100,000 USD. But more will be needed. You can help by donating now to the LCIF emergency fund.

As we draft this letter, the Lions of Nepal are joining together, along with Lions from neighboring countries, to get much needed emergency supplies such as food, fresh water, and temporary shelter into the areas of devastation.

This is the worst natural disaster to strike Nepal in nearly 100 years. Our message to Nepal is “help is on the way.”

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families, and the Lions of Nepal in this time of need.

Sincerely,

Joe Preston
Barry Palmer

Celebrate Earth Day!

Author: 5 Comments

“It’s our turn to lead” is the theme for the 45th Anniversary of Earth Day. In connection with the Protecting Our Environment campaign in April, we encourage Lions to help raise environmental awareness in their community not only today, but all month long. Consider organizing a community-wide recycling project or invite your family and friends to join your club for a tree planting activity, roadside cleanup or renovation of a local park.

Be sure to report your environmental projects to MyLCI and post pictures to your clubs social media sites. This Earth Day, help up reach our Centennial goal of serving 100 million by 2018!

How is your club celebrating Earth Day?
