On Sunday 25th May 2014 members of Lions Club of Mombasa Bahari together with Past President Lion Niraj Chawla of London (Acton) Lions Club and the Contractor of the Water Pans Project visited all the four pans in Ganze in Kilifi County. The pans were official handed over to the local communities.

These pans, which our club embarked on are built in the remote area of Kilifi County. The four pans are named ‘Simba’, ‘Chui’, ‘Kiboko’ and ‘Mazaro’. The two large pans will hold 3000CuMtrs of water and the small ones will hold 1600CuMtrs. The community have been requested to use the small pans for their domestic animals and the large ones for their home use and farming.

With the rains all the pans were full to capacity and already the community were benefitting from them. Some have even started farming in the surrounding areas.

After handing over Simba Pan, we all were invited to Maoja Primary School were prayers and songs were said by the elder and school children. Lion Niraj was also made the local elder and was given the local name of Maoja Soldier.

The club also planted two trees, one at the Chui Pan and one at the School.

The club is very fortunate that these pans were fully sponsored by London (Acton) Lions Club, Lion Dr. Khanubhai Babla and the family of V. K. Hirani Suppliers.

We Baharis salute them, and on behalf of the communities we say ‘ASANTE SANA’.
