Health Programs that Focus on Hearing, Diabetes and More

Lions are known as "knights of the blind," focusing on programs and services for the blind and visually impaired – and aim to eliminate preventable and reversible blindness. But we also participate in other community health programs and projects.

  • Lions support local and large-scale global health programs to control and prevent diabetes and diabetic retinopathy, the leading cause of vision loss in adults of working age in industrialized countries.
  • And around the world, many Lions service projects have an impact on health. For example, Lions in the United Kingdom funded the first fully equipped ambulance for newborns in Bosnia and Herzegovina. And Lions in the Cayman Islands have worked to increase awareness and early detection of breast cancer.
