Whilst the world looks on in despair for those most affected with the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, there is much needing done to help those children who have been left orphaned or abandoned as the disease spreads throughout the region.
The current estimated number of orphaned or abandoned children is 5,000 and rising.
Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) have initiated a project to provide food, shelter and to build orphanage accommodation for those most in need.
An immediate donation of 150,000.00 Dollars has been pledged from LCIF.
Lions Clubs throughout the world have also started to pledge support, currently most notable sums of money have been pledged from Norwegian Lions – $100,000.00, Lions in Japan $80,000.00 and Sweden $30,000.00. The Lions of Spain are currently active with their appeal for help, and the members of Torrevieja Costa Lions Club will discuss the matter at their monthly business meeting.
As readers will know the Torrevieja Costa Lions Club work tirelessly in the community of Torrevieja and surrounding villages to help those most in need, but in times of major disaster also have a commitment to offer support wherever possible.
Readers will remember that with the enormous generosity of the general public, your local Lions have donated huge sums of money to assist in places like Haiti, Japan, New Zealand, Lorca and most recently donated over $12,000.00 to assist following Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.
Should any individual, group, organisation, business or association wish to make a contribution the Torrevieja Costa Lions will be delighted to receive your support and guarantee that every cent donated will go directly to those most in need.
To make a donation your first point of contact should be on e mail to Lion President Iain Bennett on email@example.com or by phoning Iain on 966 731 495.
