With the motto of WE SERVE, some energetic and benevolent people of the small town of Ranaghat joined their hands with the Lions Movement and established this Club on 31-12-1985. Since its inception, the leaders of the Club tried their best to gather more and more people under the umbrella of this Club and put their best efforts to successfully arrange some projects one after another with the only aim of serving the needy people. In accordance with the International guidelines, our main stress was put on prevention of blindness apart from taking some other types of social welfare activities. We organized a lot of Eye Treatment Camps and Eye Operation Camps at different corners of Ranaghat Town as we did not have our own building at that time.
In the year of 1998, Dr Sunil Adhya, a respected gentleman and a hardworking physician, and his wife Smt Snigdha Adhya donated a piece of land at Biswaspara, Ranaghat in memory of Late Paramita Adhya and Late Ram Prasad De. We had a great relief and started to collect funds besides our own pockets in a great effort to construct a building there. At this time, some benevolent like minded people came forward with Donations and we were able to purchase another piece of Land adjacent to the donated land. Our immediate controlling body DISTRICT 322B1 also extended their supporting hands to make our dream comes true. The building as a Shelter for Distressed was inaugurated on 23-06-2001 by the then District Governor of Lions District 322B Lion A P Singh.
