For nearly 100 years, Lions Clubs have provided resources for individuals who are blind or who have severe vision or hearing loss worldwide. We also sponsor programs in our community that provides assistance for the purchase of eyeglasses, hearing aids, health-related services, scholarships or educational needs.
3125 people were screened by a team of 25 volunteer doctors from Belgium between 29 June 2015 and 10 July 2015 this year in our See & Smile project. A total of 200 cataracts were found and 146 treated (54 no-shows) and 602 dental problems treated.
Join Lions from around the world to plant trees and take an important step toward reversing the trend of deforestation! Whether it means organizing a tree planting event with a local school or taking part in a largescale reforestation project, each and every person can make a big difference.
Once a year our members and volunteers paint Zebra crossings, put up sign posts and meet with traffic officials to discuss and improve practices on roads in the Kilimanjaro region.
Many children in our community face a lack of basic needs, such as adequate shoes and clothing and live with families facing economic burdens or homelessness. We supply donated clothes regularly to families and communities to alleviate the burden on the people facing hardship.
The rapid increase in life expectancy and the growing prevalence and incidence of vision threatening diseases put millions at risk. We regularly set up eye camps for our local communities to encourage the early detection and timely treatment of eye diseases, degeneration and appropriate treatments for low vision.
Hunger and poverty go hand in hand. Nearly one billion people do not get enough food to be healthy. We wish to fight hunger in our community and raise awareness of this global problem by organizing regular food drives.
