Lions Befrienders is a multi-generational, extended family filled with love. It is where we serve the seniors of the community.
We are not just an organisation that provides enriching activities with good infrastructure. It is a place with a soul, and heart filled with love.
Out of this love springs empathy, kindness, respect, patience, compassion, generosity, integrity, joy and peace. With this love filled to the brim, we bring it to the community to share and care.
We hope Lions Befrienders can be the second home for the seniors. After all, Lions Befrienders is about Connecting Seniors and Enriching Lives.
