HELEN KELLER'S CHALLENGE
In 1925, Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become "Knights of the Blind". Since that day, Lions clubs throughout the world have been involved in helping the visually and hearing impaired. Glasses, white canes, helper dogs, eye surgeries, hearing aids and ear surgeries are constantly being donated to those in need.
