Lions In Action
























Ready to Help, Worldwide


Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.
Our 45,000 clubs and 1.35 million members make us the world's largest service club organization.
We're also one of the most effective. We get the job done.


We recently:
• Brought 3,000 volunteers together to build a playground for children of all abilities in California, USA.
• Fed 60,000 people in a township in South Africa. It's something Lions do there every day.
• Sent a team of eye surgeons to Honduras to treat more than 100 adults and children.
Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need schoolbooks, with seniors who need transportation and with people we may never meet.


We're led by talented, dedicated volunteer leaders from around the world. And, we're supported by the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), which helps to fund Lions humanitarian projects. The International Headquarters for both Lions Clubs International and the LCIF is in Oak Brook, Illinois, USA.

Join an International Network of Volunteers and Friends Right now, Lions are improving communities around the world. We're meeting to plan a local project. We're sponsoring international exchanges for young people. We're bringing clean drinking water to a remote village. We're building. We're sharing. We're repairing. And we're having fun.
We have community clubs that meet in person. Cyber clubs that meet online. And special interest clubs that can be based on your profession, a hobby or anything you care about. Each club matches the needs of its members to help them support their community – right now.
