“Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) supports and develops international humanitarian programs that serve people in need. With the dedication and work of Lions, LCIF is able to improve millions of lives through our high-impact initiatives. Our international humanitarian programs are focused in four main areas.
Preserving Sight Since 1990, Sight First has been making quality eye care accessible to those who most need it. Sight First has made it possible for more than 30 million people to have improved or restored vision.
Supporting Youth Over the past 25 years, more than 12 million young people in 80 countries have benefited through Lions Quest, our youth development program for kindergarten through 12th grade.
Providing Disaster Relief In times of disaster, Lions meet immediate needs such as food, water and shelter with funds from LCIF. For larger-scaled disasters, the Foundation remains committed to helping communities rebuild into the future.
Meeting Humanitarian Needs LCIF is active in a variety of international humanitarian efforts, such as supporting the construction of homes for the disabled, providing vision screenings to Special Olympics athletes and combating measles.” (www.LCIF.org)
