You can help Lions Clubs’ initiative in Haiti

Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded a US$50,000 Major Catastrophe Grant to provide immediate help to the victims of the Haiti earthquake. LCIF is in contact with Lions in the immediate area, neighbouring Latin American countries and area Lions leadership, to assess the situation and determine immediate needs and how Lions and LCIF can best assist.

Within 24 hours, Lions around the world had pledged nearly US$250,000 to help. Immediate relief efforts centre on providing water, food, medicine and other essential needs. Sri Lankans can assist Lions on the ground and Lions Clubs International Foundation by responding to this disaster with a designated donation to the "LCIF Haiti Earthquake Relief" Fund.
