For the past four months, we've been holding monthly contests so you can learn how Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) makes an impact. This final contest in the series celebrates LCIF's partnerships with other organizations dedicated to making a difference. Enter now!
Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) and LDS Charities are collaborating on a three-year SightFirst eye care capacity building project in Ubaté, Colombia, which will serve 8,000 new patients. Services will include general eye health screenings, cataract surgeries, laser treatments for patients with diabetic retinopathy, and glaucoma examinations for low income individuals and families.
LDS Charities will provide funding to purchase a portion of the surgical equipment for the facility. LCIF will lead capacity building efforts, by training more than 300 medical professionals, Lions volunteers, and government leaders in topics related to eye health, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Together, this partnership will provide a long-term, sustainable impact on eye health in the area.
Learn how LCIF partners with other organizations to do even more good, and you could win a special prize. Just complete a few simple tasks—such as watching a video or viewing a blog post—that show you the kind of impact LCIF has worldwide.
