Lions focus efforts to five humanitarian goals.

Diabetes kills over 5 million people a year, and rising. It is the eighth-leading cause of death in the world. We are confronting this global health emergency by raising awareness, giving access to care, and treatment. We believe we can help prevent and control Diabetes by uniting Lions and Leos.
The earth is essential to life. Pollution impacts the quality of our life. We set environmental goals at the local and global level. To combat this threat we plant trees, organize recycling programs, and providing clean drinking water. We believe that a healthy planet is fundamental to the well-being of all.
Nearly one billion people go to bed hungry every night. That’s why we are hard at work addressing this global need by providing help and hope to the children, families and neighbors who need it most. Lions and Leos distribute food to school children, stock food banks, create sustainable community gardens and lead community food drives to fight hunger where they live and work. We work to sustain life and dignity for the most vulnerable among us.
Pediatric Cancer
Every two minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer and less than half of the world’s children have access to effective care. Children who survive cancer are often left with disabilities which impact their physical development and ability to learn. That’s why Lions and Leos are answering the call to expand access to life-saving treatment and support the children and families who need us most. We are working to give children with cancer a second chance at life.
In 1925 Helen Keller challenged Lions to become “Knights of the Blind”. We have taken this responsibility to improve eye health and eye care for hundreds of millions of people around the world. Today, 80% of vision impairments are preventable or curable, so our service is more important than ever before. Lions and Leos screen vision, educate our communities, build clinics and support the blind and visually impaired through technology and vocational training programs. We work to preserve the precious gift of sight for the world.
