Hamburg, Germany, 8 July 2013 – The GAVI Alliance and Lions Clubs International today announced a unique partnership designed to protect tens of millions of children in the world’s poorest countries against measles, a highly infectious disease that kills an estimated 430 people every day, mostly in developing countries. Under the partnership, Lions Clubs – the world’s largest service club organisation – will deploy its network of 1.35 million volunteers to raise US$ 30 million and to improve access to vaccines through the GAVI Alliance, a public-private partnership whose mission is to save children’s lives and protect people’s health by increasing access to immunisation in the world’s poorest countries. The funds raised by the Lions will be matched by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, bringing the total to US$ 60 million. The announcement was made at the Lions Clubs’ 96th annual convention in Hamburg, Germany. “Lions Clubs International and its members are excited to continue our commitment to the fight against measles and rubella,” said Lions Clubs International Foundation Chair Wing-Kun Tam. “Through our joint efforts with GAVI and other partners, we will increase access to quality immunisation services at every level – globally, nationally and locally – to benefit children in developing countries.” Social mobilisation boost Lions Clubs and GAVI will work with ministries of health in developing countries to ensure children are vaccinated against measles and rubella. Lions will also play a key role in social mobilisation efforts by working work with local leaders, coordinating community-level publicity and serving as volunteers at vaccination centres. Measles kills about 160,000 people annually, mostly children under age five. GAVI provides the measles vaccine in a single shot with the vaccine against rubella (German measles). “This new partnership will bring us another step closer to effectively tackling measles and rubella, two serious infectious diseases,” said Dr Seth Berkley, CEO of the GAVI Alliance. “Teaming up with the vast network of Lions Clubs worldwide will allow GAVI to immunise more children with the measles-rubella vaccine, ultimately reducing the number of measles deaths and cases of Congenital Rubella Syndrome.” Through our joint efforts with GAVI and other partners, we will increase access to quality immunisation services at every level – globally, nationally and locally – to benefit children in developing countries Wing-Kun Tam, Lions Clubs International Foundation Chair Lions Clubs has committed to raise US $30 million for GAVI immunisation programmes by 2017, when Lions Clubs celebrates its 100th anniversary. Under the GAVI Matching Fund, the UK and Gates Foundation match contributions to GAVI from corporations, foundations, their members, customers, employees and business partners with a goal of raising US$ 260 million for immunisation through 2015. “We are grateful for the continued and generous commitment of Lions Clubs International and its members to improving the health of the world’s poorest children,” said Bill Gates Sr., co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. “This partnership will help us urgently reach all children, no matter where they live, with the vaccines they need.” The partnership makes Lions Clubs the largest member of the GAVI Matching Fund, which now has secured more than US$ 145 million in private sector gifts and donor matches. Lions Clubs is the Matching Fund’s 10th member.+ More details

CRIMINAL FOUNDATIONS: Fraudulent “Humanitarian” Organizations and the Myth of “Non-profit” Educational Institutions Solutions are available today for civilization’s worst problems—wars, starvation and dehydration, infectious diseases, and environmental pollution—these nightmares are awaiting widespread diagnosis and treatment with new sustainable and sustaining technologies. But these remedies for what ails us are being blocked by political and financial special interests, Multinational corporations and the wealthiest most powerful industrialists value profits more than people, saving lives, and protecting the natural resources on our planet. In this remarkable feature-length professional presentation by Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz—the world’s best credentialed, most prolific and controversial pharmaceutical industry whistle-blower, these commercial interests are exposed for having contrived “population problems,” depopulation objectives, methods of birth control, and poisonous consumer products to allegedly serve “higher living standards” and “national security,” justifying a continued course of social and environmental degeneration. Dr. Horowitz presents here compelling evidence and arguments that this status quo injustice is imposed mainly by the public’s mindset. Shaped by the media and “non-profit” institutions and foundations, public education, attitudes, values, and lifestyles have been compromised to accommodate corporate control over globalization and political impositions that have turned people against people, nations against nations, and man against nature. What if you learned that the largest wealthiest “humanitarian” foundations and “non-profit” institutions generally believed to be helpful, were outrageously harmful as corrupt extensions of commercial operations administered to aid-and-abet organized crime? In this film you will learn how and why the world’s most trusted “humanitarian” foundations and educational institutions are molding mindsets and directing civilization’s degeneration by omissions, misrepresentations, and downright FRAUD. These acts and actors have generated a global “PSYOPS,” Dr. Horowitz explains, affecting and damaging everyone. Freedom, Dr. Horowitz asserts, begins with recognizing how and why this imposition operates, why it should be terminated, and how it can be replaced with more honest stewards of public information, knowledge, education, and direction, rather than psychopathic indoctrinations generating civilization’s further degeneration critics contend are neither healthy, intelligent, rational, or sustainable. This film is must viewing for people who know something is terribly wrong with the way the world is operating, can’t quite figure out what, and seek practical solutions to advance a healthier more sustainable life and generally prosperous and peaceful planet. This film was produced by Dr. Leonard G. Horowitz by invitation of officials of the World Organization for Natural Medicine, in association with The Canadian College of Humanitarian Medicine, and Medical Veritas International.+ More details
