Due the terrible ongoing conflict in Ukraine, today we have unreservedly voted to contribute £500 to the Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF) for the Refugees and Displaced Persons fund.
Lions clubs around the world are donating funds to support this special disaster relief fund.
LCIF are working with leadership in each country to develop a project plan for LCIF to support Lion-led distribution of immediate needs. Care packages will include food, water, hygiene items, and clothing. After initial grants, LCIF will continue to work with Lions in the adjacent and surrounding countries to evaluate needs, and the potential for Lions to assist.
Whilst we normally distribute funds raised locally back within the local area, the unprecedented attack on a peaceful country and the huge humanitarian fallout as a result, we felt this was the least that we could do.
