Lions Clubs International was founded in 1917 by Melvin Jones. Lions Clubs International is the worlds largest service club organisation with members in 186 countries around the world.

Lions Clubs International has had a history of support for the work of the United Nations since that Organisation's inception in 1945, when it was one of the non-governmental organisations invited to assist in the drafting of the United Nations Charter in San Francisco.

Lions have been involved helping the sight impaired since Helen Keller addressed the International Convention at Cedar Point, Ohio on June 30, 1925 and charged Lions to be 'Knights to the Blind'.
