Lions Mobilize $1.5 Million for China Earthquake Relief
Date:5/15/2008

government to provide humanitarian service. Since 2002, Lions Clubs International has been the first and only international volunteer service group to be officially recognized by the Chinese government. China's government issued an executive order that was countersigned by the Chinese premier to officially establish two pilot Lions clubs in Shenzhen and Guangdong. Today, there are 1,655 Lions clubs members in 79 clubs in China in addition to 1,429 Lions in 62 clubs in Hong Kong and Macau.

Lions service in China began in 1997 with the SightFirst program. SightFirst is LCIF's blindness prevention program aimed at addressing and reversing preventable blindness. Through SightFirst China Action, LCIF has invested more than US$30 million to build up eye care services and eradicate preventable blindness, which was matched with US$200 million from the Chinese government. Those funds supported 4.6 million cataract surgeries in China and Tibet, established 104 surgical eye units in rural areas and trained eye health care workers where there previously were none. LCIF is providing sustainable eye care services for rural poor populations.

To support Lions' relief efforts, contributions can be made to the Lions China Earthquake Disaster Relief Fund. Donations continue to support immediate needs and will assist in long-term rebuilding efforts. Donations from U.S. residents are tax deductible.
