WHO WE ARE

After Cyclone Tracy demolished most of Darwin in December 1974 , in the period 1975 to 1976, Lions Australia formed two bodies –

  • Australian Lions Community Emergency Relief Fund (“ALCERF”) to co-ordinate fundraising for disaster relief;
  • And a National Disaster Committee

In 1980 the Disaster Committee was amalgamated into the Emergency Relief Fund.

The Foundation was formed in 1981 by the District Governors of the day and this was formalised at the Multiple District Convention of Lions at Mt. Gambier in 1983.
