Humanitarian service is the cornerstone of the Foundation’s mission, and that service is conducted in a wide range of ways. The needs of each community vary as much as the people, which is why local Lions identify the projects that can make a real difference. It might be bringing running water to a remote village, enabling a teacher to truly hear her students for the first time or helping a Special Olympics athlete see the finish line more clearly. Every project the Foundation funds involves meeting authentic needs and transforming lives. When we hear that life got a little easier or is filled with new possibilities, it inspires us to continue our work. Read about some people reached by our humanitarian efforts here.
