Earlier today, the Foundation’s chairperson, Naresh Aggarwal told Presidential Affairs, Governance and Public Administration minister, Nonofo Molefhi that the charitable organisation would continue partnering with government in the health sector. 

Established in 1917, the Lions Club consists of chapters/clubs in various countries including Botswana. Botswana has 15 Lions Clubs with the oldest being that of Lobatse which is 51 years old. The Foundation is an arm of Lions Club International, which, among others, provides grants to support humanitarian projects undertaken by country chapters of Lions Club International. 

Aggarwal updated Molefhi on the various activities the Lion’s Club is undertaking in Botswana. 

“We are in discussions on building a diabetics hospital in Botswana.

“We have also funded tree planting in villages around the country and recently we built a primary school

in Letoreng village, which we have since handed over to the Ministry of Basic Education,” he said. 

Aggarwal further said one of the Lion’s Club key focus areas is to prevent avoidable blindness and improve quality of life for people who are blind and visually impaired. 

“We also want to ensure that all community members have access to nutritious food.

“We thrive to sustainably protect and restore the environment to improve the well-being of all communities and we are also working to help those affected by childhood cancer to survive and thrive,” he said. 

The Lions Club in Botswana continues to contribute to the needy in hospitals, women’s shelters and centres for children with disabilities. It also contributes to relief efforts such as when natural disasters occur.
