Lions Clubs International provides unrivalled support for sight programmes and services within local communities across the world. These include vision screenings, eye banks and eyeglass recycling. We provide eye care services to those at risk of losing their sight, and we undertake fundraising where every penny raised helps fund vital sight related projects.
Projects designed to prevent blindness, restore eyesight, improve eye health and benefit eye care have been an essential part of the work of Lions Clubs across the world for nearly 100 years. It was in 1925 when Helen Keller, the inspirational deaf-blind campaigner, challenged Lions to be “knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness.”
