On Friday, July 7, 2023, the founder of Lionism in Suriname and in multiple district 60 carried out her first service project for the benefit of the community. In this context, very large fruit and vegetable packages were offered to 6 hospitals in Suriname to prepare for the patients admitted there for nursing. The economic crisis in which Suriname finds itself has an adverse effect on all sectors, including the health care. Due to the increased costs of operations, hospitals are not always able to keep their operations running. There is often a shortage of money and resources. This situation therefore has an impact on the quality of the services provided to the community. In this context, we as a lions club have decided to support hospitals by making large fruit and vegetable packages available. The foodstuffs will be prepared according to a healthy lifestyle method for the patients. Patients with various chronic conditions are also admitted to the hospitals, including diabetic mellitus and oncological conditions. So our donation of today also benefits these people. In addition to fruit and vegetables, the hospitals also received rice. The government of the Republic of Suriname encourages the bundling of Public Private partnership due to the precarious economic situation in the country. We carried out this project this morning with loyal lions friends. The local media has widely publicized this project in the community.
