The Lions Club of Mulugushi today handed over a solar system worthy K18 million to Chawama Health Centre.

Speaking at the hand over ceremony, Lions Club of Mulugushi president Enid Sakala said the move is a practical demonstration of the organization’s commitment to help communities.

Lion Sakala said the Lions Club of Mulugushi was aware of the challenges faced by the clinic, especially in the maternity wing, due to frequent electricity power cuts.

Lion Sakala said the solar system is aimed at ensuring that the clinic operates smoothly despite the electricity power cuts.

Chawama Health Centre Sister-in-Charge Evelyn Tembo said Chawama Health Centre was servicing the community in Chawama, Msisi, Kamwala, Lilayi, Makeni and many other surrounding areas.

She said an average of 600 deliveries are carried out at the health centre per month, hence reliable power is critical to the health centre.

Sister Tembo said the solar system will help the midwives not to conduct deliveries in the dark which was a danger to the babies and the mothers.

  1. Ba lions really try to help the communities. thats an org i wouldnt mind to give a donation to.they have a good reputation when it comes to serving the community and im sure my money will be put to good use

  2. But while all these donations are making huge differences to disadvantaged people’s live, imagine what would happen if govt, just for a minute, acted like NGOs or other such charities. Poverty and disease would easily be eradicated. But on the other hand, the same people that are busy being Lions over the weekend and the ones that halt jobs and push the red tape and mediocrity during the work in the govt and quasi govt jobs.

  3. Yep, at the expense of the people that are supposed to serve; the people who put them in office now have to beg to see them. What a master slave shift!

  4. Hi supergal and Lusaka, I’m nambala 3 since we’re the only ones. I wonder where the others are, I hope they’re not having a big party without me…I like to be where the fun is.

  5. Ba LT its Mulungushi not Mulugushi. I only wish tax payers money was administered by such organisations rather than individuals who are stone hearted and all they think about are ways of introducing new types of allowances for themselves. That is why Lucky Dube sang to say:
    “I pay my Gardener to clean up my garden, I pay my Doctor to check out the other thing, I pay my Lawyer to fight for my rights, I pay my body guard to guard my body, but there is only one man i pay but i dont know what am paying for and thats the tax man or govt. May his soul rest in peace. Keep up with your good works Lions club.
