Lions Club International
Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization with more than 1.3 million members in approximately 45,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas around the world. Our mission is to empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.
Founded in 1917, we are best known for ﬁghting blindness – it’s part of our history as well as our work today. But we also perform volunteer work for many diﬀerent kinds of community projects – including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.
