LIONS in Bulawayo, Zimbawe successfully worked their magic for rural and urban youngsters when Lions International was one of the sponsoring partners, in the Zimbabwe MEASLES and RUBELLA vaccination campaign.

Matopos Lion President Ruth van Rensburg was the go-to girl arranging an introductory meeting for the Lions Club Presidents and the Bulawayo Deputy Mayor, Councillor Gift Banda. The Lions team heads, the three club Presidents, of Matopos - Lion Ruth van Rensburg, Bulawayo - Lion Glenys Morgan and Khumalo - Lion Thembinkosi Zulu, presented the Deputy Mayor, Councillor Gift Banda and Mr.Magagula, with T-shirts, caps and hats. More T-shirts, caps and hats were given for the Mayor, Councillor M.K.Moyo, who was out of town, along with the Director of Health Services, Dr.Z.Hwalima. Councillor Banda spoke of the good relationship between the "City Fathers" and Lions Club in Bulawayo and furthermore his pleasure at the City of Bulawayo being included in such a worthy cause, the MEASLES and RUBELLA vaccination campaign.

The theme, "VACCINATION IS A GIFT OF LIFE" saw teams hard at work, spreading the word, vaccinating and making this a successful healthcare campaign in Bulawayo District. Congratulations, to all the dedicated healthcare professionals for their hard work, also Lion and Leo Teams (see page 4 of the Matopos Rocks Magazine November 2015) who travelled far and wide in a very short time, to enhance the result of Zimbabwe’s VACCINATION IS A GIFT OF LIFE campaign...
