Lions in Sight Eye Clinics

In cooperation with the Lions in Sight of California Foundation (formerly Lions in Sight of CA/NV) and with grants from the Lions Clubs International Foundation, the San Francisco Fil-Am Lions Club, in cooperation with other clubs in District 4-C4 and Multiple District 301 (Philippines), founded the first Lions Eye Clinic in the Philippines. These clinics serve as distribution points for recycled eyeglasses shipped from the United States, providing a much needed service to very underprivileged communities. They also serve as collection points for donated eyeglasses from local Lions Clubs, continuing the cycle and gaining self sufficiency.
