Lions Clubs International Global Causes

Every journey begins with a single step. One act of service, one encouraging word, one gift of generosity is often all it takes to bring hope where it’s needed most.

Over the last 100 years, the kindness of Lions and Leos has multiplied across borders, oceans, and continents. With over 1.4 million members, we now have an opportunity to truly change our world.

That’s why we’re uniting our global service around five areas of need. These Global Causes present significant challenges to humanity, and we believe it’s our turn to meet them.

MISSION STATEMENT
The primary mission of SVOSH is to facilitate the provision of vision care worldwide to people who can neither afford nor obtain such
care.
WHAT WE DO
The Student Volunteers for Optometric Service to Humanity (SVOSH) is a 501(3)(c)
organization that helps provide eye care and eyewear to developing nations.
SVOSH holds meetings at which volunteers sort and package used eyeglasses
donated by the Lions Club and other organizations within our community.

underserved countries to conduct free eye exams. SVOSH students and doctors
have made trips to Belize, Brazil, Costa Rica, Colombia, Dominican Republic,
Ecuador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Kenya, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, and

Students at OSU College of Optometry became affiliated with VOSH in 1984.

U.S.-based non-profit evaluator Charity Navigator has awarded...

Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) — our foundation — its eighth consecutive 4-star rating based on financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency. Only four percent of U.S. charities have earned this distinction. I’m proud of our achievement and grateful we can continue assuring donors that 100 percent of their financial gifts fund LCIF programs that enable you to serve our world in need.

In sharing our stories, we connect, learn, and multiply our capacity for change. As we move through year two of Campaign 100: LCIF Empowering Service, let’s proudly tell stories of the people we’re able to serve thanks to our foundation. Every story we tell, every dollar we give to LCIF, spurs life-altering change as we increase our service impact, fight diabetes, and expand our global causes to include childhood cancer, hunger, and the environment.

Congratulations to LCIF and to you, fellow Lions. Together, we’re changing the world.

In friendship,

Gudrun Yngvadottir
Chairperson
Lions Clubs International Foundation
