Lions International District 404B3 targets N200m to feed the poor, address childhood cancer

Lions International District 404B3 Nigeria is targeting to raise N200m to feed the poor, address childhood cancer and distribute free eye glasses to people, among others.

The initiative is part of the 2024/2025 Lions Service Year, according to the District Governor, Lion (Dr) Ibrahim ‘Jide Bello.

Speaking in a press briefing on Thursday, Dr. Bello said the N200m is expected to be raised in a presentation and fundraising luncheon scheduled for Saturday, August 10th, 2024, at Anchor Events Center, Agidingbi Road, Ikeja, Lagos, even as he called on members and other well-meaning Nigerians to be a part of the event.

According to him, the fund will be used to tackle acute hunger by ensuring that 5000 people are fed.

“We will prioritize the construction of a ‘Food Court’ to provide nutritious meals to those in need, ensuring that no one goes to bed hungry. We aim to reach 5,000 people.”

In addition to feeding the poor, Dr. Bello said the club will also carter for about 3000 people with vision impediment.

“Clear vision is essential for a better quality of life. We will focus on distributing eyeglasses across our district to those who cannot afford them, ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to see the world. Our target is to build on last year’s efforts with an additional 3,000 eyeglasses,” he said.

Moreso, the club will expand its community service to address childhood cancer. Dr. Bello pointed noting that, childhood cancer is a critical issue that demands the attention of all.

“We will enhance our efforts to support children and their families affected by cancer through medical assistance, awareness campaigns, and emotional support.”

“We are reminded that every act of kindness and compassion leaves a lasting impression. We are called to breathe life into our service, staying proactive, bringing our vision to life, and focusing on positive outcomes,” he said.

He emphasised the need to recruit new members into the club, particularly the youth and senior citizens, while retaining current members through engaging and impactful initiatives.

On his part, Dr. Bello assured Lions and Lionesses present that he would work tirelessly to extend the club’s services to more communities in need.
