The Lions Club of Coventry Godiva is actively involved in organizing and supporting eye camps that provide treatment for cataracts in various parts of the world. Cataracts are a common eye condition that can cause vision impairment or even blindness if left untreated. These eye camps are set up in remote areas where access to quality healthcare is limited. The Club works in collaboration with local medical professionals to provide free eye screenings, surgical procedures, and post-operative care to those in need. By organizing these camps, the Godiva Lions aims to improve the quality of life for individuals suffering from cataracts and promote better eye health in communities worldwide. Their efforts have made a significant impact in restoring vision and preventing blindness in underserved populations.
