The Nina Maria Foundation is a wonderful organization in Colombia that provides a safe, enriching home and environment for orphans. With the help of grants from LCIF, the orphanage recently opened several workshops that teach valuable skills to help the children follow their dreams toward brighter futures.
I had the pleasure of attending the inauguration of these workshops, which include a screen printing, sewing and computer facility. I even got a crash course in screen printing, and received a gift of the lovely handiwork the children sewed.
Thank you so much to the Lions in Colombia, and to the staff and children at the Nina Maria Foundation, for such an incredible welcome and pleasant tour of the orphanage. It warms my heart to see first-hand how Lions and LCIF are helping children across the globe.

The beaches in Hawaii are beautiful, but strong currents can also make them dangerous — especially for visitors who are not aware that although the waters may seem calm, riptides beneath the surface can cause drowning. Lions in Hawaii joined a community-wide effort to make their beaches safer by setting up rescue tubes along the shore. These rescue tubes allow strong swimmers to help bring people who swim out too far back to safety.
