International Project Spotlight

Chile Audiology Grant Approved by Rotary International

Minneapolis University Rotary Club is pleased to announce a grant from Rotary International that will provide modern audiology equipment for the Otto Gabler Instituto de la Sordera (Institute of Deafness) in Santiago, Chile.  This grant builds on our club’s relationship with the Institute that began with an initial Rotary grant in 2002. The Institute will expand its diagnostic services to include infants while upgrading hearing services to students and members of the local community.  Besides Rotary International the project received support from five Rotary clubs in the Minneapolis and Santiago areas, the local Rotary districts of each area, and the International Hearing Society.

 

Grant to Improve Maternal and Child Health in Palestine Approved

Minneapolis University Rotary is partnering with East Jerusalem Rotary Club on a grant to provide health education and medical care in the West Bank.  The grant from Rotary International will fund a mobile health unit with staff serving the needs of women and young children in refugee camps and remote areas where high rates of infant mortality and birth defects are common.  Besides Rotary International, this project has support from five District 5950 Rotary clubs, the East Jerusalem club, several national and local organizations, and many individuals.  This project is an international, multi-faith project exemplifying Rotary’s commitment to improving health and building bridges between people around the world.
