Centennial Service Challenge Update: 20 Million Benefited

csc-tracker-20-million-benefited

100 million is a lot. Ask anyone. So, last year, when Lions announced our Centennial Service Challenge goal of helping 100 million people before the end of the association’s 100th anniversary, people may have thought we were a little crazy. But now we’re happy to announce that in a few short months, Lions’ service has already benefited 20 million people! 
This data, which measures Lion activities through December 2014, represents the first big step on the path to our Centennial celebration. Thanks to the incredible response from Lions like you, we’re on our way to achieving our goal! Lions serve. 
From the Worldwide Week of Service to screening the vision of children in their community and Relieving the Hunger, Lion service touches the lives of people in every corner of the world. Leading up to our Centennial in 2017, Lions have an incredible opportunity to demonstrate the positive impact of service by joining together to help those in need. 
We’re off to a great start, but we still have a ways to go. Keep serving and supporting the Centennial Service Challenge by visiting Lions100.org, where you’ll find info and resources to start planning your next Centennial service project today. 
Remember, when Lions come together to serve, we can change the world! 


Successful Measles Vaccination Campaign in Tanzania---- Posted by LCIF Admin on Monday, April 27, 2015


The Lions Blog

DSC03953

In October 2014, Tanzania carried out one of the largest public health interventions in the country’s history. In one short week, more than 20 million children were immunized in a measles and rubella vaccination campaign. 

Tanzanian Lions were active in the social mobilization planning process at the national and municipal level to ensure that high coverage would be achieved. During the campaign, Lions worked to educate parents on the dangers of measles and rubella and to encourage them to bring their children to vaccination camps to be immunized. Activities included the production and distribution of more than 20,000 posters and banners, road shows to raise awareness in urban areas, hosting mini-campaign launch events to raise awareness and engage communities at the municipal level, and using radio, television, and print media to amplify awareness of the campaign. 

Having Lions members in countries around the world that care about protecting children from measles and rubella is one of Lions’ greatest strengths as an M&RI partner and Lions social mobilization activities in their countries have made a contribution to the success of numerous vaccination campaigns. 

Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) is an official partner of the Measles & Rubella Initiative. This collaboration has successfully reduced the number of measles-related deaths throughout the world. LCIF and Lions provide technical, financial and grassroots support for measles vaccination campaigns. Through this partnership, over one billion children have been vaccinated in more than 80 countries, reducing measles deaths by 90 percent in nearly all countries. Donate today to help LCIF vaccinate even more children against measles and rubella! 
Happy Children in Tanzania

EARTHQUAKE DISASTER IN NEPAL - CONDOLENCE MESSAGES

My Fellow Lions, 
This is indeed a difficult moment for us as we pause to reflect on the calamity that befall the people of Nepal. At such times we are often at a loss for words to express the value of life, particularly of communities that get wiped off.  
Pause with me now to reflect and pray for the deceased so that their souls rest in peace....Amen.

Lion Night

DEAR LION LEADERS,

We wish to join the citizens of NEPAL in expressing our grief to the death toll that has crossed over 4000 and over 10,000 NEPALESE have been rendered homeless.

This is indeed a very serious catastrophe that has struck the beautiful country of NEPAL.

In light of the above, our Past International Director and Endorsed Candidate for 2nd Vice President 2015 – 2016, has urged us all to rise and look at the means and ways of supporting and assisting the affected people of NEPAL either financially or materially, what ever little we can offer will surely go along way in boosting the moral of our fellow human beings in distress and who have been completely devastated.

With utmost sympathy,
ABDUL MAJEED KHAN
PAST COUNCIL CHAIRPERSON

To the people of Nepal, 
May peace  find you during this difficult time and let our prayers be the light you seek during this discomforting period.
Lion Rizwan 

Dear All,
It is a tragedy indeed.
Our brothers need support.
I suggest than in addition with whatever will have been raised,during the Multiple District Convenion,we hold a general fundraising.
Something useful which can safe souls will be raised.
Regards,
Polly

Lions Clubs mobilise for World Immunization Week - Advocacy toolkit launched to help Health Ministries spread the word about vaccination against measles and rubella in developing countries

Geneva, 24 April 2015 - Lions Clubs International will mark World Immunization Week by providing its extensive network of volunteers in Africa and South Asia with an advocacy toolkit to help raise awareness of measles and rubella immunisation programmes.
From 24-30 April, the toolkit will help a series of national Lions Clubs support African Health Ministries’ to mobilise local communities against two potentially deadly infectious diseases.
Measles kills about 160,000 people annually, and remains one of the top vaccine-preventable killers of children under age five; rubella (German measles) infection occurring just before conception and early pregnancy can result in foetal death or birth defects known as Congenital Rubella Syndrome.

WHAT’S HAPPENING AND WHERE

Activities in a series of countries, including Kenya, Madagascar, Mali, Uganda and Zambia will include press briefings, advertising campaigns and door to door advocacy:
  • Kenya: in Nairobi, the Lions are planning measles and rubella campaign launch events at the Kibera health center and the M.P. Shah Hospital, as well as four more in other cities;
  • Uganda: local Lions are preparing radio advertisements as well as several talk show appearances, newspaper advertisement, and advocacy breakfasts;
  • Zambia: 100 "foot soldiers" will carry out house to house awareness raising activities. The First lady of Zambia, who is a Lion member, will be part of the regional launch of World Immunization Week.
Lions Clubs, which make-up the world’s largest service club organisation, work closely with Health Ministries in developing countries to ensure children are vaccinated against measles and rubella. By deploying its network of 1.35 million volunteers, national Lions Clubs play a key role in grassroots efforts to mobilise local leaders and communities to ensure no children miss out on life-saving vaccination sessions.
Gavi and Lions Clubs International have been working together since 2013 to help protect tens of millions of children in the world’s poorest countries against measles. Under the partnership, Lions will deploy its volunteers to raise US$30 million by 2017, when Lions Clubs celebrates its 100th anniversary. The funds will be matched by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, bringing the total raised for Gavi to US$ 60 million.

Dear Lions, 
I am not only proud of this achievement but also wish to point out that the hard working and diligent Lions Benon, Nkabakyenga, Mubangizi and their team have delivered. Adding more Lions to our den will make us flourish in the community services we render.
My heartiest congratulations to all.

DG Lion Night


DEAR LIONS BENON & NKABAKYENGA,

Greetings from Dar-es-Salaam and trust you are doing well.

I have no words to express my sincere thanks and lots of appreciations to you and your wonderful team in spearheading the formation of a long awaiting new Lions Club of Sheema.

I strongly believe that we must reward the hands of help that is extended to us. Thanks must be introduced if rewarding is impossible. If thanks is also neglected, then it is surely ingratitude.

Lion Benon and your esteemed Team, I thank you for paying heed to our call by adding one more club to our glorious District 411B and restore a historical and special Recognition on our District to be called a full fledge District as at April 21, 2015. Well done, and now let us all endeavour to close the back exit and retain these members.

Wishing you all the best in all your future Lionistic endeavours

With warm regards,
 LION ABDUL MAJEED KHAN
