Albeit several social service activities are being undertaken time and again in Nepal, LCI MD-325 through its dynamic and tireless members mobilized in the social services, recently took one of its bold and broadest decisions since its inception in Nepal to establish and operate its' own ‘TU Lions Blood Transfusion and Research Center (TULBT&RC) with modern typology of services in the blood related issues with the participatory perspectives. For this reason, the Lions of MD-325 initiated their participatory approach with Tribhuvan University, the premier University of the country for its objective to be materialized. Following the objectives, We, LCI MD 325 and TU jointly agreed to materialize this mission through its establishment in the premises of TU- adjoined to Aayurved Campus/Hospital with 3 Ropani of land ( 16428 Sq. Ft.) at Kirtipur. LCI MD-325 has planned to manage and mitigate the financial arrangements from various sources for its institutionalization.
Accordingly, for the first time in 45 years history of Lionism in Nepal, history, around 1,200 Lion members of various clubs from the different Districts from all over the country came forward as promoters of the project with their commitment and contribution of NRs. 25,000/- from each member which further sets out its milestone. Finally, “TU Lions Blood Transfusion and Research Centre” (TULBT&RC) was born and it took its shape of a legitimate institution through its registration and affiliation with the concerned government offices and regulatory authorities.
As of date, the building construction site has been demarcated with the boundary pillars; soil test for building design purpose has been completed; selection of technical consultants and following the building design as per the norms of the WHO for the proposed four storied Blood Bank building has been completed and the tender bid documents for construction of building are under preparation.
