Our Global Causes

Every journey begins with a single step. One act of service, one encouraging word, one gift of generosity is often all it takes to bring hope where it’s needed most.

Over the last 100 years, the kindness of Lions and Leos has multiplied across borders, oceans, and continents. With over 1.4 million members, we now have an opportunity to truly change our world.

That’s why we’re uniting our global service around five areas of need. These Global Causes present significant challenges to humanity, and we believe it’s our turn to meet them.

Diabetes

We serve to reduce the prevalence of diabetes and improve quality of life for those diagnosed.

Vision

We serve to prevent avoidable blindness and improve quality of life for people who are blind and visually impaired.

Hunger

We serve to ensure all community members have access to nutritious foods.

Environment

We serve to sustainably protect and restore our environment to improve the well-being of all communities.

Childhood Cancer

We serve to help those affected by childhood cancer survive and thrive.
