Indonesian Lions Serve Flood Victims

Author: Leave A Comment

Thanks to an LCIF disaster relief grant, the Lions of District 307 A1 in Indonesia were able to provide medical assistance to 910 families (approximately 1,400 people) who were victims of local flood. Additionally, the Lions comforted the children of these families, many suffering from skin problems due to the flood waters, by drawing, coloring, singing and dancing with them.

When disaster strikes, Lions respond immediately and continue to help rebuild lives in the long term — whether a typhoon hits halfway across the world or a flood devastates a local community. You can help by donating to the LCIF Disaster Relief Fund.

How does your club provide disaster relief to those in need?

Palmer’s Blog: Serving the Homeless

Author: Leave A Comment

I was in Puerto Rico over the weekend, helping Lions with a service activity that provided food and clothes for homeless people in the area. That’s one of the many, many things I love about being a Lion — we are global and local . Not only are Lions reaching out to people in need in other parts of the world, from recycling eyeglasses that will eventually be given to someone across the globe to providing relief when disaster strikes in a completely different country, but we are also focusing on our neighbors. The people close to home who need our help.

That’s what the Puerto Rico Lions are doing by feeding and clothing the homeless people in their community. By making our local communities stronger, happier and healthier, we are truly making a great impact.

How is your Lions club helping your neighbors?
