Rotary Club of Vapi, RID 3060, recently handed over medical equipment worth $63,771 to Haria Rotary Hospital. The appliances included 11 monitors, an adult ventilator, a neonatal ventilator and a defibrillator for the Intensive Care Unit at the hospital run by the Rotary Charitable Trust of the club.
The project was funded by TRF through a $30,000 Term Gift contribution by Girdharilal Modi, a member of RC Mumbai Downtown Sealand, RID 3142, and DDF of $10,000 from last year. RC Biratnagar, RID 3292, Nepal, was the international partner.
PRIP Kalyan Banerjee handed over the equipment to the hospital authorities in the presence of PDGs Ruchir Jani and Ashis Roy, Club President Ketan Patel and past president Prakash.
“This is our maiden global grant project and we now realise the power of the Foundation,” said Patel, adding that he will urge each one of his club members to contribute generously to the Foundation so that “more good work can be done to transform communities.”
