Food for Everyone
“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread- Mahatma Gandhi.”
Every journey begins with a single step. One act of service, one encouraging word, one gift of generosity is often all it takes to bring hope where it’s needed most.
Over the last 104 years, the kindness of Lions and Leos has multiplied across borders, oceans, and continents. With over 1.4 million members, we now have an opportunity to truly change our world.
That’s why we’re uniting our global service around five areas of need. These Global Causes present significant challenges to humanity, and we believe it’s our turn to meet them.
Our Global causes are :
Diabetes -We serve to reduce the prevalence of diabetes and improve quality of life for those diagnosed.
Vision -We serve to prevent avoidable blindness and improve quality of life for people who are blind and visually impaired.
Hunger- We serve to ensure all community members have access to nutritious foods.
Environment- We serve to sustainably protect and restore our environment to improve the well-being of all communities.
Childhood Cancer- Lions and Leos provide support for the needs of children and families affected by childhood cancer through impactful service activities.
We want to express our contribution towards the world problem of hunger. Besides food being a human right up to 811 million are going hungry and more than 2 billion suffer from malnutrition. During pandemic times the situation has become worse. Lions Club Lucknow Century had conducted many hunger relieving activities during pandemic period at Dayanand Bal Sadan , an orphanage in Motinagar area of Lucknow, approximately 90 orphans from different state of North East and Nepal ageing from 5 to 18 years reside there. Lions Club Lucknow Century organizes food activities every week . The club members visiting the Bal Sadan . There is a big dormitory where all the children get seated, first they offer food prayer (bhojan mantra) after that members of the club serve them food . Members found a very healthy environment there , children are well disciplined . Members never faced any chaos when conducting the activity amongst so many children . We feel satisfied seeing their happy eyes eating the tasty & nutritious food. There is a cow shed in the Sadan and pure cow milk is utilized to prepare dairy products for the children. The club has provided active assistance towards the shed. This is a really noble activity by the club, seeing the happy faces of the children make us feel proud of the activity. Orphanage authorities has always appreciated us and encouraged us for the same.
