ILUPEJU LIONS CLUB COMMISSIONS DIABETES CLINIC EXTENSION, LASUTH




The Ilupeju chapter of the Lions Club International, on Tuesday, 11th of June, 2024, commissioned a new extension of the Diabetes Clinic and formally handed it over to the management of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH). This development is set to enhance diabetes care and management as a critical health need for Lagos State residents.

At the handover ceremony held at LASUTH, the Commissioning Chairperson of the Project, Lion Oluwaseun Ayorinde NLCF, said that the health initiative marks a significant milestone in the Club’s history. He revealed that the Club built and commissioned the first Diabetes Clinic in Lagos State with the support of Organizations and Individuals that are passionate about humanity’s well-being; exactly twenty-three years ago.

“Today’s commissioning is a testament to Ilupeju Lions Club’s spirit of dedication to serving our community and improving the lives of those around us. We recognize the growing burden of diabetes and we are committed to providing access to quality healthcare services, education and support. As we commission this clinic extension, we reaffirm our commitment to the Lions’ motto, ‘We Serve’; we hope this project will inspire others to join our mission to impact our community positively”, he said.

The current Club President, Lion Abdulhakeem Salman NLCF, expressed his gratitude to the management of the hospital, the members of the Club, and the sponsors who made the project possible. He appreciated the Chief Medical Director for always accommodating and supporting the Club’s initiatives. He said, though it took three years to complete the project, the constant contribution of every member of the Club is what has brought the Club this far.

“We recognize the growing challenge diabetes poses to our society, and it is our mission to provide solutions as part of our Club’s vision to improve health and well-being, strengthen communities, and support those in need through humanitarian service. This clinic extension is a testament to our dedication to improving healthcare accessibility and quality for all,” the President of the Club stated.

In his response, the Chief Medical Director, Prof. Adetokunbo O. Fabamwo, lauded the Ilupeju Lions Club for its generosity towards the hospital. He revealed that the Lions Club International has a formidable presence in LASUTH; recalling that the Club constructed the hospital's Oncology Unit Building, the Paediatric Cancer Unit, renovated the hospital’s Eye Institute, and also donated ultra-modern equipment for the Eye Institute.

“The burden of diabetes is huge; therefore, this new extension has come at an opportune time. It is going to offer a lot of succour and relief to our patients, they would be able to sit comfortably as they wait their turn to see the doctor”, Prof. Fabamwo remarked.

The CMD appreciated the President, past Presidents, the District Governor and all the members of the Club for the donation. He assured them that the building would be put to good use and he prayed that God would bless every member of the Club.

During the commissioning ceremony, the Chief Medical Director was honoured with an 'Accomplished Leadership Award', in recognition and appreciation to his dedication to the ideas of Lionism and invaluable services to the growth of Ilupeju Lions Club.
