Money to help Ukraine

Our Club has just sent a cheque for £1,345 – of which £345 came from personal donations from our members – to Lions Clubs International Foundation via our District Treasurer to benefit the Foundation’s fund for Displaced Persons and Refugees.  Already the Foundation has sent grants totalling US$239,000 as 7th March to Lions Clubs in Austria, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Ukraine and more grants are ready to be handed over as requests are received.  Throughout the UK, Lions Clubs are helping with donations such as ours plus by collecting specific items for transport to the countries affected by the refugee crisis as well as Ukraine Lions Clubs.  Lots are arranging special events to fund-raise for the crisis and Lions will always make sure such monies go to the people for whom it was intended.
