Too many people suffer from poor eye health simply because they do not have access to the proper care. The Montreal Chinese Lions Club has been working to make eye care more accessible to people in Quebec. The Lions help fund an eye clinic run by the McGill University Health Centre, which provides free eye exams on an annual basis to people in need. The clinic aims to help these people from slipping through the cracks of the province’s healthcare system.
Watch the video above to learn more about the clinic. How does your Lions club help people in your community receive the eye care they need?

Earlier this week, I visited Lions in Taipei, Taiwan. I attended the opening of a new park in the community, including the unveiling of a beautiful Lions plaque. Lions have planted 500 new trees in the park, and have worked hard to ensure the new park is a space for everyone to enjoy.
Environmental projects are some of my favorite Lions activities — it’s always great to get out in the fresh air with friends and family to help protect our planet.
Thanks to the Lions in District 300G2 for a wonderful stay!
The Lions International Convention is just around the corner! On July 4-8, Lions from around the world will come together in Toronto, Canada, to meet with friends, attend shows and seminars, and explore the beautiful city. And of course, because Lions are always helping others wherever they go, there will also be an opportunity to give back to the host city through the Lions Care project.
The Lions Care 2014 project will benefit the YWCA Toronto, which provides shelter for women and children. Convention attendees can donate toiletries, public transportation tokens and gift cards. There will be a designated area in the exhibit hall where Lions can make donations.
