We're so thrilled to be able to share with you that we've been awarded a Rotary Global Grant of nearly $80,000!
We have received such amazing support from Rotary clubs over the years and in particular from our great friends at the Rotary Club of Zanzibar.
This grant will be used to fund essential equipment and the vital renovations of Makunduchi Hospital. As many of you will know, we have been working with Makunduchi Hospital for over a decade now and have made numerous much needed improvements to the hospital and facilities over the years, but the latest renovations will make a huge difference to patient care.
The grant provides funding for general repairs across the hospital, but in particular their is essential funding for a new ultrasound machine for the maternity ward. There is also funding provided to renovate both the Male and Female wards, providing new beds, mattresses, pillows, linens, and lockers for patients to feel comfortable and secure during their stay in hospital. In addition the Kitchen and Laundry room will be renovated, with new ovens, a fridge and washing machine being installed which will ensure patients receive the best possible care.
Finally, Rotary have also committed to supporting our HIPZ Programme Coordinator Jabir to undertake an online Postgraduate Diploma in Public Health through Manchester University. Jabir was very happy indeed when we told him the good news...
We are also thrilled that the Stone Town Rotary Club have chosen us as the beneficiary of their amazing Rotary Zanzibar Golf Day which is to take place on 29th September 2018.
We hope those who attend have an amazing day and we can't wait to hear how much money you raise to support our cause.
