Lions Club Senegal will validate its social commitment with the construction of a burns center and a coronarography center (scans and medical images) for people suffering from cerebrovascular accident. This is a promise made by its President, Jean Adédiran, alongside the meeting of Lions Club leaders from 21 countries in Western and Central Africa. He says: "The state of Senegal will take care of the construction of the buildings, and we will equip and train technical staff."
The two health facilities will be housed in the Fann University Hospital Center. This is the continuity of its social actions implemented over several years. You should know that Lions Club Senegal has already released "more than 79 million CFA francs" for the equipment and renovation of health care and schools in Senegal, according to the president. "These meetings held in Dakar (…) are an opportunity for the governors (Lions Club leader) chosen in July in the Djamena to conduct a mid-term review of the five priority intervention areas defined by the Lions Club, what is the fight against diabetes, the environment, the fight against hunger, the prevention of childhood cancer and the eradication of blindness. The 5 governors are there to report activities. We are an organization that is voluntarily active. It was created 101 years ago. Today, in addition to this pathology, we fight diabetes, to relieve famine in the world, childhood cravings but also to the environment, "insists Jean Adédiran.
Like any meeting, he had to dispel doubt about this organization considered Masonic. "The Lions Club is a philanthropic organization that brings together men and women from different backgrounds that have decided to spend time spending money and putting their experiences at the service of the poorest people," said Adediran, sweeping a reputation for determining affinities between this organization and masonry.
