Lions are willing to do whatever it takes to make our communities better places to live. That's why Lions support recreational camps to meet the special needs of persons with diabetes. Recreational camps help adults and children with diabetes:
Lions arrange these camps with input from experts – physicians, nurses, departments and ministries of health or local associations for persons with special needs. Lions also volunteer their time during camp sessions or provide funding for camps organized by other groups.
See our list of Lions-sponsored recreational special needs camps or contact our Health and Children's Services Department.
The Lions–Measles Initiative pilot program vaccinated 41 million children in Ethiopia, Madagascar, Mali and Nigeria against measles – a leading cause of childhood blindness.
