Mission: Lions are an international network of 1.3 million men and women in 202 countries and geographic areas who work together to answer the needs that challenge communities around the world.
History: In 1925, Helen Keller challenged Lions to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness" during the association's international convention. Today, Lions are recognized worldwide for their service to the blind and visually impaired. Lions demonstrate their commitment to sight conservation through eyeglass recycling, sight partnerships and countless other sight services.
Hearing Loss Services: Local Lions clubs may provide communications aids for deaf and hard of hearing persons in the community.
Find Your Nearest Lions Club: Please reach out to your local Lions Club to inquire about hearing aid assistance.
