Lions Club to construct N51m  Dialysis Centre in Akure

The proposed Dialysis Center to be built by the Lions Club International, District 404A1, at the Akure Complex of University of Medical Science Teaching Hospital with a cost over N51 million when completed will prevent   avoidable deaths  and  run at a cheaper cost.

This is just as the club promised to spend 40.000 dollars on awareness and treatment of diabetes in the six states under the district in one year.

The new District Governor of the club, Lion Adekunle Adedipe declared these when he led other executive members of the club on a courtesy visit to Owena Press Limited, publisher of The Hope Newspaper on Monday.

Memorandum of  Understanding (MoU) was last week signed between the state government, the club and Adcem Health Services Limited on the project.

Adedipe noted that the Lions Dialysis Centre, will be constructed within the UNIMED Teaching Hospital, Akure complex while equipment for the centre will be provided and run by the other partner, Adcem Healthcare Services.

Describing diabetes as the world’s largest killer, he stated that the club has taken a giant step in eradicating diabetes in the country, adding that it has also helped over 5,000 people of the state in preventing hunger.

He explained that the club has also saved the environment through its numerous projects saying, “we are planning a symposium on plastic waste management.”

While describing the project as a laudable one, he stated that the hospital has no Dialysis Centre, hence the need to provide  one for the benefit of the people of the state.
