Thanking Lindum Rotary Club

Posted in: News, by kayleighb2a, on 7th April 2014 | 0 comments

Six Health Workers trained in the Manyara region earlier this year have gratefully received their basic instrument kits which were kindly donated by the Rotary Foundation.

Dentist and Bridge2Aid volunteer Barry Devonald presented his experiences with Bridge2Aid to the Lindum Club, who upon seeing the scale of the problem of access to dental care in developing nations and impressed with Barry’s outline of the work completed, applied for a grant from Rotary’s worldwide Foundation to match the Club’s own contribution.

The application was successful and resulted in an incredible £3000 being donated to our training programmes. The money covered the cost of instrument kits for six successful Health Workers who completed our dental training programme in February.

A huge thank you to Barry himself, who continues to volunteer with us and make a lasting change for thousands of people currently living in pain with no hope of treatment. And of course to the Rotary and Lindum Club for such a generous contribution to our work, of which more than 60,000 people in the Manyara region will benefit.
