The eye clinic project is ongoing and is overseen by Rotarian Bev Radue on our behalf. Clinics are held twice a month at a town called Nkwenkwesi and treats local vulnerable people who would otherwise be completely blind within a short period of time.
The polytunnels are in an orphanage at Station Hill, a township near Port Alfred. these are needed to intensify a self feeding program. The problem was that the intense African sun quickly dries watering and plants have no chance to grow, the tunnels retain moisture and protect the plants from the sun.
Working with another club such as Port Alfred, where we personally know members, means that all our money is spent directly on a project organised by them. No expenses are taken from our donations so we get 100% value for money. - Rtn. John Green
