Last Thursday, Bren Milson and Shamus Davies (top) from the Burleigh Heads Rotary Club brought us 3 hospital beds, destined for our Vanuatu X-Ray unit to go to Pentecost Island and in turn picked up 60 Rough Terrain Wheelchairs to go up to Donations in Kind (a Rotary Australia World Community Service project) for distribution to various destinations in Oceania: East Timor, Solomons just to name a couple. That is how Rotary works, we work together to produce a result. That is why Rotarians are 'People of Action'. We DO, we don't just talk about it!

Update from District RAWCS Chair Richard Crandon: "From this consignment, 6 wheelchairs have already been dispatched to go to the Ronton Hospital at Kiritimati (Christmas Island)." [No Henrietta! Not that Christmas Island! With the Millions of dollars the government is spending on that Christmas Island, they can well afford to buy their own wheelchairs! Kiritimati is on Kiribati, just about half way between here and Mexico. ☺ Ed.]
