In July this year, Lions Club of Kumi Central was requested by the District Police Leadership of Kumi District to help out in the repair of the Police Station which was dilapidated and in a sorry state.This was part of the police force strategy of working with the community and the easier way to go though it was to work with Lions Club.
There was no hesitation by Kumi Central who took up the challenge and in working with the Kumi Town Community, Non Government Organisations and the business people Nine teen Million shillings (19M) was fund raised for the activity.
