Lions Clubs International came to South Africa in 1957 and the organisation has grown exponentially since then. The very first club to be chartered was the Cape Town Lions Club. There are now 2 Districts within this Multiple District which cover the countries of South Africa, Namibia, Swaziland and Lesotho. The numerous clubs around the country provide a vital lifeline for the many needy communities. Clubs are made up of dedicated volunteers from all walks of life who give up their spare time to serve those in need.
Lions District 410W with 57 chartered Lions Clubs and approximately 1100 members, stretches from Knysna in the Western Cape, South Africa all the way to Tsumeb in Namibia.
The services provided by the many Lions Clubs around the District range from:
assisting our Senior Citizens,
helping our Youth to grow and develop,
feeding the Hungry,
rebuilding the lives of those that are victims of Disasters
restoring sight to the Blind
looking after our Environment
getting involved with the community to ensure Good Health
and many more needs to communities and individuals are met by individual Lions Clubs and members
