Last year the Lions clubs of the UK and Ireland decided to develop a disaster response programme specifically related to emergency water supplies.
 
This meant that when the Nepal earthquakes occurred we were in a position at the beginning of May to airfreight out 56 cartons each  containing 16,000 tablets  capable of purifying 9 million litres of water and 280 Lifesaver water filtration kits capable of treating 4.2 million litres of contaminated water.
 
Our £2,000 donation will ensure this fund is ready to respond to future emergencies.
If you as a member of the public wish to make a donation online just go to this website:-
