Laban club continues its legacy of social work with help of local charitable trust

Zenith Jubelieth launches ambulance donated by Singhanias

Shillong, May 12: A group of Good Samaritans, backed by the benevolence of one of the oldest business families in the city, is keeping the five-decade-old legacy of Zenith Jubelieth Club in Laban.

On Friday, the club inaugurated an ambulance that was donated by the Ratanlal Mohini Devi Singhania Charitable Trust at a programme held on the club premises. The vehicle was launched by South Shillong MLA Sanbor Shullai, Mahavir Singhania and other members of the family.


The launch was part of the club’s golden jubilee celebrations. Thanking the Singhania family for its charity, club vice-president Monotosh Chakravarty recollected the members’ struggle to run the social services in the present day.

“The club has a handful of active members and at times it becomes an arduous task to render services. We had an ambulance that needed to be replaced. But we did not have enough fund for that. Meanwhile, the pandemic came… We are grateful to the Singhania family for extending help for the cause,” he said.

Mahavir Singhania, the son of Ratanlal and Mohini Devi Singhania, recollected his association with the club for the last 20 years. He also appreciated the club’s good work for over five decades.

Shullai, who also contributed generously for the cause, talked about the old days when people had to struggle to go to the hospital or take the bodies of their dear ones for the last rites.

Zenith Jubelieth is known for its social work and its services have helped numerous citizens of Shillong. It also runs a hearse and helps underprivileged children continue their studies.
