Georgia now has a 30-member Indian-American Lions Club chapter, aptly named Namaste Atlanta. Ramesh Gude of Lilburn is the chapter’s first president.
Lions International (LI) is popular in India, and now in its 100th anniversary year has the first Indian serving as international president.
LI works in numerous health-related areas such as diabetes, pediatric cancer, and vision-related problems and is recognized for its service dog program.
The new Namaste Lions Club already has programs to provide food and warm clothing to Atlanta’s homeless; they are also focusing on a Suwanee family in need of support.
There are around 20,000 Indian-Americans in the North Fulton, Forsyth, and Gwinnett areas.
