On Sunday 15th March 2015 members, spouses and friends all headed to Simba village in Sharaini area, which is after Vipingo for the handing over of borehole. 

Lion Bakir Ganiwalla (member of Lions Club of Mombasa Central) and his spouse Nargis who are the main sponsors of the borehole were also present together with her sister Mrs. Farida Saigar who is here on holiday from Canada. 

As we arrived we were welcomed with traditional dances, magic and acrobatic show. 

The Councilor and local community head praised the donor and the club for agreeing to do a borehole in Simba village. They said that this will benefit around 4000 people who otherwise had to walk long distances to fetch water. 

Second Vice President, Lion Linda Shuma said in her address that as a club we are very happy to have brought water to Simba village and God willing if funds permit we will try and do more. She further said that we as a club are very grateful to Lion Bakir Ganiwalla and his family to have sponsored the borehole. 

After seeing and hearing the hardship that the locals are going through for water, Lions Akil and Maria Haji announced that they will sink one borehole in memory of their late father Badruddin Haji. Sister of Lion Bakir, Mrs. Farida Saigar also said that she will sink one borehole. Both the donor said that this will be done under the club’s banner. 

We as a club say ‘ASANTE SANA’ to Lion Bakir Ganiwalla and family and a big thank you to Lions Akil & Maria Haji and Mrs. Farida Saigar for sponsorship of two more boreholes.
