Australian Lions Foundation

Provides financial assistance and support in cases of National Disaster, Emergency and Community Welfare, encouraging International Understanding and Cooperation by Relief projects in Developing Countries. When disaster strikes the Australian Lions Foundation is amongst the first to offer disaster relief.
When Cyclone Tracey decimated Darwin in 1974, to the devastating bushfires that impacted areas of South Australia and Victoria in 2015, the Australian Lions Foundation has been on the ground providing financial assistance and support to local communities in times of need.
We continue to fulfil this need not only in Australia and Papua New Guinea, but also internationally where our emergency relief and community welfare projects contribute to global understanding and cooperation. Formed with the sole purpose of assisting people in times of need, these are just a few of our current initiatives:
