Rotary Jaipur Limb Project
The Rotary Jaipur Limb project was established in 1984 by the late Peter Betteridge from the Rotary Club of Godalming, RI District 1250, and his wife Jessamine, following a vist to the remarkable limb making workshops of Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti (BMVSS) at the Sawai Man Singh (SMS) hospital in Jaipur, India . They saw that no disabled person was ever turned away, coming as they did to the centre by any method of transport and often from great distances in India, and how all were treated free of charge
Be A Gift to Crumlin
A project started by the Rotary Club of Monaghan and adopted by Rotary Clubs of Ireland including Dublin Central to renovate a Parents Accommodation Unit in the Our Lady's Children's Hospital. OLCHC is the largest paediatric hospital on the island of Ireland and provides services for children from both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. The project funded the renovation of 48 bedrooms that are available for parents of sick children. The Arctic Challenge was a 2500km adventure to the Arctic Circle on vintage 50cc mopeds, the challenge funded replacement doors for the 48 bedrooms as part of the overall Rotary effort that funded the refurbishment.
The project delivered €75k of direct funding in addition to the thousands of hours of voluntary service provided by Rotarians and friends of Rotary.
