Where There's a NEED, There's a LION

Lions Clubs International LogoWhen it comes to meeting challenges, our response is simple: We serve !

In over 200 countries and since 100 years, in schools, crèches, hospitals and senior centers, in regions battered by natural disaster, in day clinics and eyeglass recycling centres, more than 1.45 Million Lions are doing community volunteer work, helping, leading, planning and supporting the most needy in our societies.

Because we're local, we can serve the unique needs of the communities we live in. And because we're global, we can address challenges that go beyond borders.

Some of the members of Gordon's Bay Lions ClubThe Gordon’s Bay Lions Club was founded in 1987. For over 30 years the members of this club have been serving the community of the Helderberg. We are involved with many projects, touching the lives of the people that we serve.

He went on a trip to New York where he addressed the delegates at the United Nations. In June 2016 Joel travelled to the 99. Lions Clubs International Convention in Japan, where he had the opportunity to talk to approximately 45.000 Lion members from all over the world.
