Club helps schools, health centres

National

THE Lions Club of Tabubil continues to reach out to schools and health centres in Western to help make a difference in the lives of people.
Club president Peter Boli said while the membership had dropped over the years, it had not deterred those remaining from fulfilling the club’s mission “to serve solely to make a difference in someone’s life and the community.”
The club held a fundraising event in Tabubil where K5300 was raised to buy a water tank for the Good Samaritan Centre in Kiunga. “The centre caters for people living with HIV and children whose parents had lost their lives to HIV,” Boli said.
“They come to the centre to do laundry.”
The club planned to raise more funds to buy another water tank.
“Recently, we donated 147 desks and tables to elementary schools in North Fly,” Boli said.
“The recent donation of 38 chairs was to the Tabubil Elementary School.”
Ok Tedi Mining Limited (OTML)provides logistical assistance and support to transport donated materials to Tabubil from Port Moresby and Brisbane.
OTML deputy chief executive officer Musje Werror said it was pleasing to see the dedication and commitment of club members going out of their way to serve communities in North Fly.
