Lions Clubs International Foundation
Lions Clubs International Foundation prevents blindness and restores sight through the SightFirst Program, and a number of other sight initiatives.
The SightFirst mission is to build eye care systems in underserved communities to fight blindness and vision loss and assist blind and visually impaired persons. Since the program began in 1990, SightFirst has helped save or restore the sight of more than 30 million people worldwide. On average, about every US$6 in donations has resulted in a person with vision restored or saved from blindness. Through two fundraising campaigns, Lions have raised nearly US$350 million to support the ongoing efforts of SightFirst.
They include one or more of the following elements:
