Lions from around the world fight for better diabetes relief. We run initiatives and programs to improve the lives of those living with diabetes and helping others from developing type two diabetes.
We’re helping educate the world on the need for diabetes research, programs and initiatives. Our goal is to reduce these statistics in the coming years through service, investment, and kindness.
