25 Million Kids Need You, So Get Involved Today!
Lions of the USA are pleased to announce Lions KidSight USA, a nationwide program to safeguard the vision of children aged 6 months through 6 years.
According to educational experts, 80% of learning is visual. So if a child can’t see well, he can’t learn well. Yet most young children don’t get their vision screened until they have problems learning or paying attention in school. By then, it may already be too late. Unless vision problems are detected early and corrected, they risk becoming permanent by age 7.
Our mission is to ensure eye screening and follow-up care is given to all kids because every child deserves to learn and see the world clearly. To do this, we will work with Lions to increase the number of screening programs around the country in order to reach more children when it is possible and where it is needed.
The Passaic-Clifton Lions Club is an active participant of the Lions KidSight USA program. For more information on how to schedule a free screening to your pre-school or local organization contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We have created a GoFundMe campaign to fundraise in order to obtain a Vision Screener. You can support us by visiting gofund.me/2dzr8fdk or by making a donation using the Paypal link below.

Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.
Our 45,000 clubs and more than 1.3 million members make us the world's largest service club organization. We're also one of the most effective. We get the job done.
SightFirst focuses on two neglected tropical diseases, onchocerciasis and trachoma, and continues to make significant advances. The World Health Organization (WHO) verified the elimination of river blindness from Colombia in 2013 and from Ecuador in 2014. Now, the Chinese government has announced the elimination of blinding trachoma from China. As recently as 1999, over 350 million people were thought to be at risk of contracting this disease in China, but it is no longer a public health threat in that country. This goes to show what can be accomplished when governments, volunteers and NGOs commit to eliminating preventable causes of blindness. With help from the Lions of Hong Kong/Macau and China, this announcement marks a milestone on the road toward official verification of elimination of yet another blinding disease.
Providing Disaster Relief
Lions have generously donated over US$2 million to the LCIF disaster fund following the earthquake in Nepal. Local Lions are still hard at work meeting critical needs and rebuilding. They have organized countless blood donation drives, distributed food, blankets and clean water to victims, and continue to put aside their own needs to assist their neighbors. The Lions of Nepal are providing hope in the wake of disaster.
verywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need schoolbooks, with seniors who need transportation and with people we may never meet.
The International Headquarters for both Lions Clubs International and the LCIF is in Oak Brook, Illinois, USA.
