Local Good Cause

Australian Bush Fires

As bush fires reach historic levels of destruction in Australia, Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) is there during this time of need.

Since November 2019, LCIF has awarded US$143,000 in grant funds.

Great Yarmouth Lions Club have donated £250 towards the Disaster Relief Fund.

This funding purchased water tanks in District 201-N2 and provided immediate assistance to those affected in Districts 201-N1, 201-N2, 201-V3, and 201-V6. Additional LCIF grants are expected to be awarded in the coming weeks.

To date, the bush fires claimed the lives of 25 people and burned more than 12 million acres of land. This destruction will have a devastating environmental impact for years to come. LCIF is working closely with Australian Lions to provide continued relief and support.
