Given below are the Ehics and Objects of Lions International that are read out at all our meetings and the lyrics of our National Anthem that we sing as PROUD SOUTH AFRICANS.


South Africa /National Anthem

Call of South Africa

Nkosi sikelel' iAfrika

Maluphakanyisw' uphondo lwayo,

Yizwa imithandazo yethu,

Nkosi sikelela, thina lusapho lwayo.

Morena boloka Setjhaba sa heso

Ofedise dintwa la matshwenyeho

O se boloke, O se boloke setjhaba sa heso

Setjhaba sa South Africa

South Africa.

Uit die blou van onse hemel,

Uit die diepte van ons see,

Oor ons ewige gebergtes,

Waar die kranse antwoord gee,

Sounds the call to come together,

And United we shall stand,

Let us live and strive for freedom,

In South Africa our land.

   Lions Code of Ethics





    • To Show my faith in the worthiness of my vocation by industrious application to the end that I may merit a reputation for quality of service.
