Ba Lions Get $15,000 To Combat Cancer And Lifestyle Disease

The Ba Lions Club was this week the 49th recipient of the Vodafone Amalgamated Telecom Holdings Fiji Foundation donation of $15,000 for their cancer and non-communicable disease (NCD) project.

Our efforts are to continuously support organisations that initiate projects and put in every effort to share success stories to inspire as many charities and communities said Project Director Brij Dayal.

Mr Dayal said the Foundation continues its support for the past almost a decade with an aim to catalyse real social change which is visionary, collaborative and sustainable efforts.

“The team of Lions Club of Ba also did other projects simultaneously during 2017, like the Go Green where cemetery car park was upgraded, seedling projects, water projects, Golden Age Home upgrading, cancer screening, NCD screening and 25 wheelchair handovers,” said President Mr Pradeep Chandra.

“The key issues around non-communicable disease and cancer is prompting charities to step in and make informed decisions on how in solidarity and collectively we can address and arrest the situation at hand. The project aims to benefit communities in the western division,” foundation executive Ambalika Devi said.

“The Foundation shares the same goals as their charity partners in assisting the needy in the communities,” she said.

“In a bid to improve the lives of grassroots people; Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation continues to drive its commitment to aid charity organisations to help the needy.”

“Meanwhile we as the team will continue to identify the needs of the community and will endure to partner with as many associates to ensure that we are able to address the pain of the community,” Mr Dayal said.

“The need for NCD screening and mobility device continues to increase and we are in need for more support from the corporate sector organisations and donors all over Fiji,” he said.

The Foundation has provided support of $90,000 to Lions Club of Ba Since 2009.
