Community Volunteer Work That Makes A Difference
Orange CT Lions Club
LCIF’s commitment to disaster relief goes back to our beginnings, when we
awarded our very first grant for flood relief in South Dakota, USA. Whenever
and wherever disasters strike, Lions are often among the first to offer aid—and
LCIF is right there with them, ready to support their efforts with funding
assistance. Working together, LCIF, local Lions and Lions leaders assess the
urgent needs and quickly deliver the aidmost required by victims.
This grassroots model has proven effective in tragedies around the world, such
as the Southeast Asia tsunami, September 11th and the Haiti earthquake. Lions
know that disaster can affect anyone’s community, whether it’s halfway around
the world or right at home. That’s why in the last 10 years, LCIF has provided
more than US$50 million for disasters worldwide.
Thanks to the support Lions provide to LCIF on an ongoing basis, Emergency
Grants are immediately available to provide for basic needs such as water, food, shelter and medicine. We have learned from
experience that when a disaster victim receives aid quickly, it provides strength needed to survive the shock and loss and even
a little hope for the future. To date, more than 3,000 emergency grants have been awarded.
After immediate needs are met, victims of disasters are not forgotten. LCIF remains committed to the important rebuilding of
homes and lives that must happen, often long after a disaster occurs.
Through Major Catastrophe Grants, LCIF helps with long-term reconstruction projects to help victims begin to return to their
lives and regain their independence.
At the heart of LCIF’s disaster relief efforts are the individuals and families your donations reach.
