LIONS CHARITABLE EYE HOSPITAL CHITTAGONG, BANGLADESH

The Chittagong Lions Club is the world’s oldest Lions Foundation, formed even before the Lions Club International Foundation. One of its many humanitarian projects is the Chittagong Charitable Eye Hospital, which became an Operation Eyesight partner in 1974.

We provided funds for the construction of the eye hospital and staff quarters, and for the purchase of equipment like vehicles for their outreach program, instruments and medicines. When Operation Eyesight won the Lions Club International Humanitarian Award, a large part of the $100,000 US award was given to the Chittagong Charitable Eye Hospital.
