The South East Lions Community Fund has been established so that Lions can act quickly when disasters occur, the funds raised will be used to help us provide the right kind of support to those in need. Over the years we have assisted with many community disasters.

We need your help to build this fund so that we can respond to a crisis as and when it happens, rather than having to appeal for funds and wait for many weeks or even months after a tragedy. With instant funds available we are able to provide aid and support to disaster areas. Needs in times of disasters vary considerably and can quickly alter due to the varying circumstances. Therefore we aim to provide the most timely and relevant support.

With the help of the general public, Lions club members have helped various communities, making a real difference to families in the short and long-term. Community disasters could include major floodings, hurricanes, fires and major explosions.

A disaster can impact a community for many years to come, following an event so it is important we provide immediate support but also find ways to assist in the longer term.
