more than 60 million people displaced
As the refugee crisis continues, Lions Clubs across the British Isles and Ireland have launched five special appeals to help save the lives of refugees around the world.

Many displaced families don't have the protection to withstand the cold spell, leaving them at risk of hypothermia, pneumonia and other deadly diseases. It’s hoped the public will support the Lions appeals, helping to see many refugees through the winter months.
