Idaho Lions Sight and Hearing FoundationSociety — Non-profit organization
|About||The Idaho Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation strives to be a premiere humanitarian organization, dedicated to serving the Lions of Multiple District 39.|
The Idaho Lions Sight & Hearing Foundation is often the bridge between sight and blindness, hearing and deafness, and are instrumental in the early detection of these conditions for the community members of Idaho and Eastern Oregon. The Foundation provides the community with a number of different programs aimed at alleviating suffering for people in need of medical attention. Services include:
The Idaho Lions Eye Bank, which obtains, medically evaluates and distributes corneal eye tissue in the United States and around the world. Yearly, close to 300 people are given the gift of sight through the Eye Bank.
The Personal Healthcare Assistance program provides financial assistance for sight restoring surgeries and hearing aids to those in need. We are able to provide this type of financial assistance because of dedicated people who are passionate about helping their community and donate to the Foundation.
The Idaho Lions Vision Clinic is a newly established clinic that provides eye care to low income individuals who lack vision insurance and are unable to afford an eye exam and pair of prescription eyeglasses. The goal of the Clinic is to provide quality, affordable eye care to our community.
The Community Health Screening program allows Lions Clubs, community organizations and schools to use the Foundations screening technology to provide free health screenings around the community. The Foundation can provide equipment to provide both hearing and vision screenings to detect if further medical evaluation is required.
The Eyeglass Recycling and Hearing Aid Bank allow the Foundation to provide medical mission teams with eyeglasses when they travel around the world providing healthcare. Locations our donated eyeglasses have gone include Honduras, Belize, Rwanda and Peru. The Hearing Aid bank allows people to donate lightly used hearing aids to be refurbished and distributed back into the community.
