AUS Lions Foundation
AUSTRALIAN LIONS FOUNDATION (ALF)
To provide help and assistance for public relief, emergency aid and community welfare for persons in necessitous circumstances in Australia.
WHO WE ARE – After Cyclone Tracy demolished most of Darwin in December 1974 , in the period 1975 to 1976, Lions Australia formed two bodies –
- Australian Lions Community Emergency Relief Fund (“ALCERF”) to co-ordinate fundraising for disaster relief;
- And a National Disaster Committee
In 1980 the Disaster Committee was amalgamated into the Emergency Relief Fund.
The Foundation was formed in 1981 by the District Governors of the day and this was formalised at the Multiple District Convention of Lions at Mt. Gambier in 1983.
WHAT WE DO – The Foundation provides financial assistance and support, in times of Disasters/Emergencies and for Community Welfare Projects.
WHERE WE WORK – Drought Relief Appeal was a large part of our work from July 2018 onwards., and is still ongoing.
