District 410W

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 two Districts within our 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.

The eight pillars of service for Lions around the world are: Humanitarian Efforts, Youth, Disaster Relief, Vision, Hunger, Environment, Diabetes and Childhood Cancer.
