Lions Club and SVOSH
Lions Clubs in the United States are the most important supporters of SVOSH. Throughout the year, SVOSH members speak at Lions Clubs throughout the country. Lions Clubs help us by sponsoring students for our mission trip and donating glasses. During our annual trip we dispense thousands of glasses, a demand which is mostly met through the generous donations of Lions Clubs. Without the financial support and generosity of Lions Clubs across the country we would not be able to provide our much needed services.
Lions Clubs in our destination countries are also very important in accomplishing our mission because they arrange almost every detail of our stay. They provide transportation inside the country, arrange food and housing, take us into their homes and feed us, set up our clinic, publicize our visit to the local population, help us through customs, arrange for translators, and so much more. The Lions Clubs members treat us as part of their own families and many close friendships have developed over the years.
Together, Lions Clubs and SVOSH help each other help others! Together, WE SERVE.
