Members of the San Pedro Lions Club joined hundreds of organizations and individuals around the world to provide assistance for the tens of thousands of Tsunami victims who suffered devastation in 11 countries of Southeast Asia. To date, more than 155,000 people have been confirmed dead as a result of the tidal wave caused by an underwater earthquake off the coast of Sumatra, Indonesia. Close to 1 million people have been left homeless in the wake of the catastrophe, and 500,000 people were injured.

“The terrible hurt and devastation is too much for the human heart to endure,” commented a CNN reporter on the island of Sumatra. The event of biblical proportions has shocked the world, and an outpour of help for the Tsunami victims has materialized worldwide in the form of monetary aid (more than $2 billion so far) and other forms of assistance. Many countries around the world have poured out their compassion and offered assistance to the Asian victims, with the United States of America, Japan, and Australia leading the way in aid efforts.

In this tiny island of Ambergris Caye, the San Pedro Lions Club joined in the worldwide efforts to provide hope for the desperate survivors of the Tsunami calamity. This past Sunday, members of the SP Lions Club and their alliance partners from the Belize Bank, took to the streets of San Pedro to raise funds for the victims. The Lions fundraising efforts started around 10 am and continued for almost ten hours, until 7:30 pm. A total of $17,967.61 dollars was raised by the Lions Club and staff members of the Belize Bank, given generously throughout the day by the compassionate residents of San Pedro, with an additional $1,200.00 in pledges to be collected. According to Lions Club President Nita Marin, the money will be sent directly to the Lions Club International Federation (LCIF) for proper distribution to the Tsunami victims of Southeast Asia.
