Lions Club International Fund

Donations made to Ukraine       

All the individual branches of Lions clubs throughout the UK join together with branches all over the world to make a hierachy of clubs supporting not only our local communities but coming together to help where needed when disasters strike.

The International community of Lions have rallied together to help support the citizens of Ukraine in their time of need whilst at war with Russia. To date we have donated over $8.5 million 

We cannot thank you enough for your terrific support in helping us to help our friends in need. 


Donations made to Turkey/Syria Earthquake Disaster

Conditions in Turkey

The Turkish people have begun to refer to the recent earthquake that struck their country and Syria as “The Greatest Disaster of the Century.” It has been followed by several large aftershocks. 15 million people in the South and Southeast regions of Turkey have been affected throughout 10 provinces. Cities have been destroyed in a region that already hosts the highest population of Syrian refugees and Kurds. CNN reported this afternoon that the death toll had surpassed 23,000 with many more homeless and in the dead of winter. To date we have reports of one Lion and his family dying in their collapsed home in this disaster.

Our Turkish Lions Response:

The Lions of Turkey have formed two committees. One to manage LCIF’s recently approved Major Catastrophe grant, and another to plan and carry out long-term disaster projects. The committees include Lions from affected regions and experts in earthquake and disaster relief.

To date Lions throughout the world have donated over US$1,000,000
