Lions Clubs International celebrated 77 years of partnership with the United Nations during Lions Day with the United Nations (LDUN).

Emmanuel O. Okoduwa MJF, NLCF. MD/CEO EMMADILA INTERNATIONAL LOGISTICS LTD., was a delegate at 45th Annual Lions Day With The United Nations, titled “Hunger, Nutrition & Wellness”

which held at Nairobi Kenya. The event took place on the 9th of February 2023. PID Dr. Manoj Shah was the chairperson of the occasion while Lion Shehzan acted as the Director of Ceremonies.


Emmanuel Okoduwa, a member of Ikeja Mega Metro Lions Club, represented Nigeria at the event which was attended by many dignitaries from other countries.

Below is an excerpt from Lion Emmanuel Okoduwa’s speech at the event;

“Lions, Leos, dignitaries and friends,
Welcome to lions Day with the United Nations in Nairobi. It is a privilege and a great honor to be with you here at this important global event. lions Clubs International has enjoyed a longstanding partnership with the United Nations. We were one of the first nongovernmental organizations
invited to assist in drafting the UN Charter in 1945. And each year since 1978, we have celebrat
ed our unique relationship at Lions Day with the United Nations. This dynamic event brings together Lions, Leos, UN diplomats and other global leaders from govern-ment, business and the nonprofit sector to assess the most pressing global humanitarian needs and create the innovative solutions necessary to respond.
One of the most pressing and prevalent issues facing our world is hunger. More than 800 million people around the world are affected by hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition. We know that nutrition and wellness are a critical building block of the future of our communities, and that’s why Lions have made hunger one of our global causes. We must act now to address this global challenge together.

Today, you will hear from a knowledgeable lineup of compelling speakers who will share their insights and global perspectives on the matter of hunger, nutrition and wellness. We will discuss and develop solutions on how Lions and the U.N. can make a difference in the lives of the millions who are impacted every day.

A strong partnership with the United Nations and Lions has helped shape our past and will forge our future, am confident that this unique forum of people, experiences, expertise and ideas will enable us to be part of the global solution to addressing hunger. Together we can ensure the health and wellbeing of our neigh-bors, our communities and our world.

Thank You”
