Appeal for Blankets & Tents
We are appealing for donations to help us cover the cost of UNICEF blankets and tents for refugee children so that they are able to sleep with some comfort and have access to child friendly spaces. Each Therman blanket costs just £5 and tents just over £1,000.Read More
Help the babachi orphans
With your support we can continue to raise essential funds to help the children and needy families of Gomel in Belarus, following the catastrophic nuclear explosion in Chernobyl.
After a visit in November 2015 members of the Lions Belarus Trust reported that our support is still very much required. They travelled to Gomel to visit existing project sites and agreed to raise funds for 150 beds and other items of furniture for the Babichi Orphanage.Read More

We are busy raising funds to cover the cost of a new Lions International Eye Centre which is located at Korle Bu in Ghana - one of the largest teaching hospitals in West Africa. The eye centre helps people suffering with potentially blinding eye conditions. We need your support so we can complete the development of the eye centre and improve sight services to the region.Read More
Haiti Hurricane Appeal
One Shot - One Life
Join us in the fight against measles and rubella and help to ensure that more children can be vaccinated worldwide. A staggering 400 people die each day from measles - that’s 16 deaths every hour. Most measles deaths occur in unvaccinated children under the age of five. For around just 80p or US$1 (current exchange rate), a child can be vaccinated against measles for life. A £5 donation will help 6 children, so every pound makes a significant difference to a child.
bringing humanitarian aid to families
The annual Shoebox Appeal brings humanitarian aid to families and individuals in areas of the world where we can make a difference to the lives of people in need. For many years now it has served and operated in The Gomel Region of Belarus.
We need your help to ensure the Shoebox appeal can continue to support the lives of some very worthy recipients.
Providing vital shelter
Sadly there are many unaccompanied children amongst the refugee population in camps and also in transit.
We are raising funds for UNICEF Tents which are each equipped as a child friendly space, costing £1,063 each.
