OUR PROGRAMMES

See below for details of our main programmes or select 'projects' in our news page to find out more.

#LIONSAGAINSTDIABETES

The numbers define the need

 

We’re helping educate the world on the need for diabetes-related study, research, programs and initiatives. Our goal is to bring these statistics down in the coming years through action, investment and kindness.

  • Over 422 million people are living with diabetes

  • Diabetes contributes to over 5 million deaths each year

  • 8th leading cause of death in the world

THE SIGHT PROGRAMME

Changing lives, one pair at a time

 

In just about any home, you can find a pair of spectacles that are no longer being used.

 

That same pair of glasses can change another person’s life.

That's why we've teamed up with a network of local opticians to recycle old glasses and get them sent to those who need them most.

MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE

Life critical medical information

The Message in a Bottle programme enables you to keep essential personal and medication details in a small bottle in your home.
 

We attach a sticker to your front door so that in an emergency, ambulance personnel, for example, know that medical information is contained in the house.
