News Stardom : kolkata, 9th. August 2023. Lions Club of Howrah, a pioneer club in Kolkata, engaged in various philanthropic and service activities for more than the last 6 decades. We have seven permanent projects, including two hospitals, Blood Bank, a deaf and dumb school, a First Aid Centre at Howrah Station, Gandhi Park at Howrah, a bus shelter etc., where more than 26000 beneficiaries are getting benefited every year.
Howrah Lions Hospitals provides facilities for IOL operations, general surgery, orthopedics, laparoscopy, an eighteen-bed dialysis unit, dental, X-ray, pathology, generic medicines, Naturopathy etc. with a dedicated team of renowned doctors & and paramedical staff. We also have an ambulance and bus for the patient. We have just started our dream project Blood Bank on 17th June 2023 at Jaduberia, Howrah. We are also going to start a modern diagnostic center at Howrah Lions Hospital, Jaduberia shortly. Renovation and modernization work is also going on in full swing at both hospitals.
The main objectives of these hospitals are to provide world-class medical facilities to the poor/ less fortunate citizens of our society at affordable prices, or free of cost as per necessity. The shortfall is covered by the well-wishers and donors of the society and the members of the Lions Club of Howrah. We spend almost Rupees 2.5 to 3 Crore every year on all our service projects. We are gradually improving our services in association with M/s Techno Electric & Engineering, Alcove group, M/s S K Oil Terminals Private Limited, M/s Anmol Industries, M/s Diamond Group, M/s.
