Relief for Samoa

LCIF is working with local Lions to respond to massive tsunami that hit Samoa around dawn on September 29. The tsunami was triggered by a powerful earthquake, measuring between 8.0 and 8.3. As of October 2, more than 168 people are dead and many more are missing in Samoa, American Samoa and Tonga. The U.S. $10,000 emergency grant has been awarded for New Zealand, 202-K, as American Samoa and Samoa are allocated in that district. Lions from New Zealand are distributing the funds to the areas impacted.

Everyone around the world can help by donating to the designated account for this specific disaster.

US donors can:
