Karunguzhi Lions Club was formed on 25th Jan 2007 with 25 philanthropists as chartered members of the club. Lion G.J. Prabakaran was the driving force of forming this club and Lion Ayyanarappan was the guide. Under the noble leadership of Lion L. Selvam, our club initiated a number of development activities resulting in creating impacts among the poor people in Karunguzhi and surrounding areas. During last 5 years, the club enabled 6 cardiac patients to undergo open heart surgeries and to lead a healthy life. Through conducting periodical eye screening camps, we enabled around 3000 patients with eye defects to get quality spectacles at free of cost and to restore normal eye sight. Out of those 3000 patients, 385 patients identified with cataract disease were facilitated to undergo surgery and to restore normal eye sight. One of the major achievements of this club, has been planting and growing 1800 saplings in a hill called Malaipaliyam hill located 1 km from west of Karunguzhi.
Karunguzhi Lions Club's vision is to make Karunguzhi and surrounding villages to become a knowledge based society with highly educated and employed people. Also, to make Karunguzhi and surrounding areas to be clean and green.
