Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) supports and develops international humanitarian programs that serve people in need. With the dedication and work of Lions, LCIF is able to improve millions of lives through our high-impact initiatives.
Our international humanitarian programs are focused in four main areas:
Since 1990, SightFirst has been making quality eye care accessible to those who most need it. SightFirst has made it possible for more than 30 million people to have improved or restored vision.
Over the past 30 years, more than 13 million young people in 90 countries have benefited through Lions Quest, our youth development program for kindergarten through 12th grade.
Providing Disaster Relief
In times of disaster, Lions meet immediate needs such as food, water and shelter with funds from LCIF. For larger-scale disasters, the Foundation remains committed to helping communities rebuild into the future.
Meeting Humanitarian Needs
LCIF is active in a variety of international humanitarian efforts, such as supporting the construction of homes for the disabled, providing vision screenings to Special Olympics athletes and combating measles.

ABOUT VICTOR HARBOR and PORT ELLIOT LIONS:
Victor Harbor and Port Elliot are adjacent towns on the Fleurieu Peninsula, 80 km south of Adelaide, South Australia. Settlement was originally based on whaling and the ports of Goolwa, Port Elliot and Victor Harbor handling the diverse agriculture of the area. The region has long been "Adelaide's holiday playground" but is now also a tourism centre that attracts national and international visitors. With thriving, growing communities supported by numerous churches, schools, service clubs, cultural and sporting groups and surrounded by beaches, surf and beautiful countryside rich in history, the area has much to offer the adventurous as well as those seeking a quiet time.
The Lions Club supports the community in many ways, focussing particularly on youth, people in need and people with a disability, community greening and care, and fundraising for worthwhile local, national and international causes.
