Rotary Foundation Global Grants enable us to support large (at least US$30,000) international projects that have sustainable, measurable outcomes in Rotary’s areas of focus.
These projects involve us partnering with a club or district in another country to complete the project.
Some of the projects that we are working on at this level include:
Dental Care of Disadvantaged Cambodian Children – Phnom Penh, Cambodia (Global Grant 1985054)
The Rotary Club of Phnom Penh supported this project with One2One Dental, with a total cost of US$35,935. Half of the funding was provided by the Goodeve Foundation, managed by our Honorary Member Tony Munday, with the rest of the funding provided by the Rotary Foundation.
This project provides dental treatment for 4,000 disadvantaged children a year for a 2 year period. However, the benefits will be ongoing as the new equipment we have now provided, which has replaced the very old equipment previously being used, will allow for ongoing treatment for many years to come.
See the December 2019 update for this project.
Kidney Dialysis Project – Madurai, India (Global Grant 1990812)
The Rotary Club of Madurai is initiating a low cost dialysis centre in Eastwara Hospital, at a cost of US$70,000.
This is being funded by major donors, District 3000 and the Rotary Foundation. Our Club’s role is to monitor the status of the project.
The equipment has now been purchased, with Past President Rajah Senathirajah representing our club at the inauguration of the project on 17th November 2019 at Madurai, Tamil Nadu, at his own cost.
