Lions and LCIF are already responding to the powerful, massive earthquake that struck Sichuan Province in central China on Monday, May 12. Lions in Hong Kong and Macau have raised US$600,000 and LCIF has committed an initial grant of US$500,000 to address immediate needs and provide medicines, clothing, blankets, water purification and temporary housing. Lions have already sent 5,000 tents for displaced victims, and more are on the way. Through a vast network of Lions clubs members in Hong Kong and China, Lions and LCIF are also dispatching relief teams to the affected areas to deliver supplies and assist with hands-on relief efforts.

"As the only international volunteer service organization in China, Lions Clubs International Foundation is working hand in hand with Lions in the area to assess and address immediate needs. Through our grassroots network of Lions in the affected communities, we are able to get relief supplies to those in the most need very quickly," said Lions Clubs International Foundation Chairperson Jimmy Ross.

Similar to Lions' response to other worldwide natural disasters, LCIF expects donations from Lions around the world to surpass US$400,000 in the first week. These immediate funds will help address immediate needs. Additional funds raised from Lions in the coming weeks will go toward long-term reconstruction and rehabilitation needs such as housing, schools and eye health care.

Lions have a long history of working with the Chinese
