Public drinking water well constructed by Lions Club of Kohima (LCK) for Kezeikie community was inaugurated on Wednesday at Kezeikie by CEO of Kohima Municipal Council (KMC) Elizabeth Ngullie.

Speaking as chief guest on the occasion of the formal dedication of the public drinking water well, the CEO narrated the sufferings the citizens had been facing while trying to get even a bucket of water during lean seasons at the capital city, Kohima.

Lions Club of Kohima (LCK) started the construction of this public drinking water well in the year 2009 and residents of many colonies other than Kezekie areas have been using water from the well for the last two years. 

Lauding the Lions Club of Kohima for the novel project, Ngullie hoped that the Club would also take up similar charitable works for other colonies where water scarcities were extreme.

She also called upon GBs and Panchayat leaders in the Colony to upkeep the water well and also educate the citizens in the area the importance of developing “a sense of belongingness.”

In his brief presidential remarks, Lions Club of Kohima President Lion Er Hozheto Shikhu expressed his happiness for being able to dedicate the water well to the Community of the Kezeikie area.

He recalled how the idea of constructing such a huge public drinking water well came in the minds of the members of the Club when they had witnessed extreme scarcities of water in and around Kohima in lean seasons.

Lions Club of Kohima president also lauded senior Lion K Seyie as the construction of the public drinking water well could be completed on time under his initiative.

Lion Shikhu also expressed his profound gratitude to the members of the Kezeikie Colony, Panchayat, etc. for readily providing the area (plot of land) to the Club and also their cooperation while constructing the drinking water well.

Thejao Sekhose, a senior member of the Keziekie Colony also spoke on the occasion. He also called upon the members of the Club to continue their charitable projects in other colonies too.

The function was chaired by Lion Oken Jeet Sandham, LCK Secretary while former Lions Club of Kohima President Lion Dr Sashimeren Aier pronounced a vote of thanks.
