Hospital Supplies Packed for Vanuatu, East Timor & PNG

Rotary Australia - Donations in Kind 

On Saturday, 9th May, four club members from Rotaract Club of Brisbane CBD were up bright and early to help out with a Rotary Donations in Kind (DIK) project. 

The closure of the old Children's Hospital in Herston (Brisbane) left many beds and supplies which were still very functional. Rotaractors were very involved in packing 40ft and 20ft containers with beds, mattresses, surgical supplies, cots, chairs and more. 

Much of these supplies will head to Vanuatu to rebuild a hospital destroyed by recent Tropical Cyclone Pam. More will be sent to Timor Leste and Papua New Guinea where they will improve medical facilities.
