CORONA VIRUS RAMIFICATIONS

As you are all aware, response to the spread of Corona Virus has caused cancellation of many events.  Mid-South Lions is almost fully funded by Lions Clubs contributions.  If Lions Clubs are not able to hold fund raising events, they probably will not be able to send contributions to Mid-South.

 

If there is a significant decrease in Lions funding, Mid-South will not be able to provide as much service to those in need.  Methodist Hospital has already determined that only emergency and/or absolutely necessary surgeries will be allowed until further notice.  At Hamilton Eye Institute we will continue to provide routine cataract surgeries that are mostly covered by our partners. But extensive and complicated surgeries may have to be put on hold until funding resumes on a regular basis.  Emergencies will be processed as needed.

 

This would be a good time for everyone to consider a personal contribution, or to increase your current contributions to Mid-South to help us keep the doors open, and to help us continue to provide surgeries as usual.

 

You can click the link below to get a Booster and Champions brochure.  Complete it and mail with your check or credit card information to make your donation.

 

Panic is not our aim here, but we do need to keep in mind that funding from the public is our only revenue stream, and that stream determines our ability to continue providing MIRACLES for those in need.

 

Thanks for your continued support. We'll get through this, but it will take all of us working together.
