Thand’usana Baby Haven Project

One of the club’s recent projects was the Thand’usana Baby Haven.  Situated at a Methodist church in Newton Park, the Baby Haven was in desperate need of help to redo their flooring. The Rotary Club of Algoa Bay donated R10 000 to Thand’usana with which they had some of their floor areas beautifully sanded and varnished, and others carpeted. They used the remaining funds (as well as donations from other companies) to purchase a few appliances and  make some general repairs to the house. Overall, the place is looking fabulous and new!

Algoa Bay helps out at the Ferrari Driving Experience

 

On Saturday 22nd October, the Rotary Club of Algoa Bay helped at the Ferrari Driving Experience. This driving experience invited the public of Port Elizabeth to visit Ferrari  for a test drive around the track at Aldo Scribante.

In exchange for providing volunteers to assist with registration, the funds raised from this day were donated to the Algoa Bay Rotary Club.

At the end of the day, other than some serious car envy,  the Rotarians  were left with a generous donation of R66 000 from The Ferrari Automobili Club.

Rotary Family Health Days 2016

header

The Rotary Family Health Days is an annual Rotary project run in partnership with the Department of Health (DOH).  The 5 Rotary clubs in the Nelson Mandela Bay area work together with the Department Of Health to provide free health care services to the community over the course of three days.

This year the Health Days (#RFHD2016) was held at the Walmer Town Hall from the 12th – 14th October.  With the help of the Department of Health and private companies who volunteer their time and skills, we are able to provide a range of health services. The project focuses primarily on health screenings and this year included tests for TB, HIV, blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol. Also available were hearing tests, blood-typing, nutrition advice and information, mental health awareness, eye tests and a dental truck.

Each day, Rotarians and Rotaractors joined in to help , greeting clients at the door and taking down registration details, guiding clients to services needed and assisting with refreshments.

Each client registered received an apple because you know what they say about an apple a day….

Over the course of the three days we saw 874 people with Friday the busiest. There was a constant stream of people through the town hall.

The Rotary Family Health Days was a great event, made successful by all those who volunteered and  provide a service. We look forward to #RFHD2017.
