A dialysis centre with two machines was set up at the JPM Rotary Eye Hospital by RC Cuttack, RID 3262, to help treat the increasing number of patients with acute renal disease. The work for the centre costing ₹34 lakh began last year as part of the club’s platinum jubilee celebrations. It received ₹10 lakh from the DDF and balance funds was pooled in by the members. PRID Bharat Pandya, in his virtual address, congratulated the club for completing the project within a year. IPDG Saumya Ranjan Mishra, PDG A B Mohapatra and IPP Bindu Kumar Das dedicated the facility to the hospital. The hospital will charge a nominal fee from patients for the facility and the amounted collected will be used to maintain it, said Das.
A Rotary Eye Hospital and Research Institute, an old age home, a play school and a geriatric healthcare centre are some of the projects done by the club in these 70 years of its charter.
