Club leadership recently received a letter of appreciation from the Sacred Heart Hospital in Imo State, Nigeria for the brand new 20 KW emergency generator provided by Rotary.
For several years the Fort Worth International Rotary Club has supported the healthcare efforts of Sacred Heart Hospital. The hospital is located in a portion of Nigeria that has a very unreliable power grid. Consequently, what would normally be a generator needed for a power failure emergency, has for all intent and purposes become the primary power source. The generator provided will provide power to the hospital patient care medical equipment and important functions such as surgery and the hospital laboratory.
Fort Worth International Rotary Club funded the project with a matching district grant and funds from a Rotary Club partner in Nigeria.
