President’s Service Blog: Making a Difference, Democratic Republic of Congo

I saw the dramatic global impact of the network of 1.35 million Lions when I visited an eye hospital in the Kinshasa.

Funded by Lions like us and a SightFirst grant from Lions Clubs International Foundation, the Ophthalmic Training and Surgical Center in Masina, Kinshasa, addresses the dire need for vision care in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which has been ravaged by conflict and poverty. I was overwhelmed to see how Lions are changing lives by providing a variety of vision-related screenings and services. I believe that when Lions come together, problems get smaller and communities get better.
