Founded in 1917 by Melvin Jones in the USA, Lions Clubs International is the largest international service organisation in the world. A family of members spanning from Australia to Brazil, from South Africa to Scandinavia - all united by a common motto - "We Serve".
Lions throughout the world accomplish varying activities, from cornea transplants to the supplying of hearing aids, creating awareness of diabetes, promoting peace amongst the youth, fostering international relations through youth exchange and developing and creating awareness amongst the youth through "Leo" Clubs. LCIF, the organisations' international grant-providing wing, brings in much needed grants for training facilities, medical units and disaster relief in times of need.
Lions Clubs International came to South Africa in 1957 and the organisation has grown exponentially since then. There are now 2 Districts within this Multiple District which cover the countries of South Africa, Namibia, Swaziland and Lesotho. The numerous clubs around the country provide a vital lifeline for the many needy communities. Clubs are made up of dedicated volunteers from all walks of life who give up their spare time to serve those in need.
Lions District 410E with 83 Lions Clubs and approximately 1100 members, stretches from Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape all the way to Polokwane in Limpopo.
This web site is dedicated to all these volunteers and their families who make up this magnificent organisation - we salute you all!!
In the words of James E Doolittle "THERE IS NOTHING STRONGER THAN THE HEART OF A VOLUNTEER"
