In 1925, Helen Keller addressed the Lions at our international convention and urged us to be the “knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness.” Since then, Lions have become renowned worldwide for their efforts to improve sight, prevent blindness and other visual impairment, and improve eye health and eye care for millions of people around the world. District 4C4 Lions volunteers provide active and vibrant programs serving children and adults of all ages at health fairs, centers, companies, schools, and businesses.
