The Pride of Multiple District 410

Lions BrightSight provides corrective spectacles to people in need throughout the Republic of South Africa as well as the neighbouring states.

Since its inception in July 1978, thousands of spectacles have been distributed to people, bringing smiles to the faces of people from all over the country. Without the help of Lions Clubs and Lions BrightSight they would have gone through life with impaired vision.
