Bangladesh Lions Foundation is the pride project of all Lions & Leos of geographical area Multiple District-315 Bangladesh. In order to establish a permanent welfare institution at the national level and to supplement the efforts and programmes of Lions and Leo clubs, the Bangladesh Lions Foundation was established in 1974 under the dynamic leadership of Father of Lionism in Bangladesh Lion Late M.R.

During 1977-78, the Foundation raised a net fund of over 2.5 million taka through a Nation Wide lottery with active involvement of Lions National and Leoes of sub districts of Multiple District-315 Bangladesh. Subsequently, Bangladesh Lions Foundation procured a plot of land measuring 2.25 Bighas i.e. 0.74 acres at Agargaon in 1980 and initially constructed a three-storied building, and in early 1984, Bangladesh Lions Foundation constructed the present five storied building of Lions Eye Hospital in its own premises at Begum Rokeya Sarani, Agargaon, Dhaka-1206.
