Have you got the bottle?

Have you heard about the Lions Message in a Bottle (MIAB) program? It’s a simple yet powerful idea that can make a difference in emergencies.

What is it?

  • Message in a Bottle (MIAB) is a standard form containing essential personal and medical details.
  • It’s stored in a little green bottle, conveniently placed in your fridge.
  • Two stickers—one for the fridge door and another for the inside of your front door—alert emergency services to its presence.


How Does It Help?

  • When paramedics, police, or firefighters arrive, they quickly locate the MIAB bottle.
  • They instantly access vital information: allergies, medications, and emergency contacts.
  • Valuable time is saved, and appropriate medical assistance can be provided promptly.

Who Can Benefit?

  • While it’s especially valuable for vulnerable individuals, anyone can benefit.
  • Accidents happen unexpectedly, even at home.
  • Lions MIAB ensures peace of mind for you and your loved ones.

Get Involved!

  • Lions Clubs across the UK distribute MIAB kits free of charge.
  • Thanks to fundraising efforts and public donations, we’re making a difference.
  • Reach out to your local Lions club or visit our website to request your own MIAB kit.

Remember, a small green bottle in your fridge could be a lifesaver. Spread the word and help us save lives!
