Ukrainian Surgical Theatre Lights
StoryThumbnail

In December 2013, surgical theatre lights were installed in a major hospital in Lviv thanks to approximatately $65,000 of funding from the Rotary Club (RC) of Edmonton South, RC of Sakai-East (Japan), RC Lviv Ratusha, RC Lviv Leopolis (Ukraine), Rotary District 5370 (Canada), Rotary District 2230 (Ukraine), the Alberta Lottery Fund through the Community Initiatives Program, the Rotary Foundation, and, of course, our club the RC of Edmonton-Urban Spirits.  Over the lifetime of the lights 30,000 - 40,000 patients will benefit from optimum lighting conditions during their surgery leading to better health outcomes.

Thanks to everyone who makes our club tick so funding can be available for projects like this.  Big thanks also to RC Lviv Ratusha for coordinating the installation of the surgical theatre lights, the RC of Edmonton South for setting up the project for us, as well as the Alberta Lottery Fund, both District 5370 and 2230, and the Rotary Foundation for matching funds.

Letter from Guest Speaker Ning Ding from China
I really enjoyed presenting to your Rotary club on Thursday, January 21, 2010. The topic of the "one child policy" came to my mind the second I saw "political issues" in your first email, since I have many Canadian friends who are interested in it and ask me about it.
