Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world. The 1.35 million members of our volunteer organization in 206 countries and geographic areas are different in many ways, but share a core belief – community is what we make it. LIONS SERVE. Though Lions are well known for successful initiatives in vision health, Lions service is as diverse as our members. Lions volunteer for many different kinds of projects - caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.
