The Lions Eye Bank of Hawai’i is committed to restoring sight across the Islands by honoring the wishes of donors and their families. We provide medical centers with corneas for vision-saving transplantation procedures, and supply ocular tissue to research institutions so we can help to further humanity’s understanding of blinding diseases. We have proudly served Hawai’i for nearly 40 years, and we work every day to prevent unnecessary blindness and uphold the community service principles of the District 50 Lions Clubs.
Hawai’i Lions Foundation is to serve as District 50 Hawai’i Lions’ charitable, tax-exempt body to promote programs of improving and expanding services to sight and hearing impaired persons while enhancing the image of Lionism throughout the State of Hawai’i.
The purpose of the Foundation is to support the Lions Clubs of District 50 Hawai’i in serving their local communities as they carry out essential sight, hearing and other humanitarian projects..
