KOHIMA, Dec 11 (NEPS): Members of the Lions Club of Kohima (LCK) have visited the leprosy people at their Center here at Naga Bazaar on Sunday.
The team led by Club President Lion Er Hezheto Shikhu at a function for the Leprosy People here at their Center, Naga Bazaar has handed over blankets, cakes and meats to the inmates. Kits for the children of those Leprosy people have also been given.
Speaking at the handing over program, LCK President said such program was a continued activity of the Club for decades and would continue to do so. “You are always in our hearts and we always pray for your wellbeing,” the President said. “God is not only for powerful and rich people but He is for all in this Universe.”
Wishing a very Merry Christmas to the inmates, Lion Shikhu prayed that they would all have enjoyable and peaceful lives and spend coming Christmas with “fully embracing Lord Jesus.” He also wished for the wellbeing of their families and children.
Lion Shikhu also explained that he was aware of the news of shifting of the present Leprosy Center to some nearby place. He said the members of the Club would discuss the matter and would try its best that the Center remained unchanged or else if it was to be shifted, the feasibility and comfort of the inmates staying in the news location should be the top priority. “We shall see the best environment for your peaceful staying,” he assured the inmates.
One of the senior inmates, while thanking the LCK for its continued caring and loving for them, made a fervent request that their Center always had “a peaceful environment to stay” without any disturbances.
Senior Lions of the Club— Lion Er Vitoshe Rochill (MJF), Lion Talimangyang Jamir, Lion Er Talitemsu Jamir, Lion Dr B Imliwapang and Lion Oken Jeet Sandham, Secretary, LCK were among others who attended the function. All the inmates and their children also attended the program.
It may be mentioned that the “Living Accommodation” of this Leprosy Center had been constructed by LCK way back in 1983.
