The Lions Club District 413 has urged its members to be proactive and remain steadfast in improving the living standards of people in various communities.
First Vice District Governor Christine Kasonde says the “Lions” have a great responsibility of encouraging peace and promote international understanding in the society.
Speaking when she officially opened a one day workshop for region 3 and 4 Lion Kasonde noted that this is why there is need for members to be leaders in the provision of humanitarian services for the benefit of poor communities.
She said the re-occurrence of floods especially in Lusaka is an area that the Lions should offer their services and assist the affected who are in most cases vulnerable.
Lion Kasonde said that Lion club members have a role to play to ensure the safety of people through supplementing government’s efforts in finding a lasting solution to such challenges.
She noted that members can also work as individuals or as a group and bring change to the less privileged people in the communities were they operate from.
She further challenged members to identify projects and get involved in community activities that give them an opportunity to broaden their horizon and fulfill their goals of making life better for others.
