Responding to the Humanitarian Crisis in Ukraine
Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) and Lions around the world are working to make sure that we are there to help families who are struggling to meet their most basic needs. Find out how LCIF is supporting, how Lions are serving and how you can make a difference.
After a December 2021 tornado outbreak in the US, LCIF grant funding, made possible by support from our generous donors, was awarded for Lions-led efforts to help victims. In January 2022, International President Douglas X. Alexander visited some of the hardest hit communities in Kentucky. "There is nothing like actually seeing the devastation that has hit this community," he said.
