At the Rotary in Great Britain & Ireland Annual Conference and Showcase May 2019 Mercy Ships gave us exclusive news that a new ship is being built in China, the Global Mercy.
Rotary in Great Britain & Ireland President 2018/2019 Debbie Hodge announced a Rotary Global Grant, the $1Million Dollar Challenge, to fund medical equipment.
The project is open to Districts and Clubs globally with an invitation for Districts to donate with DDF money (say $10,000 or more if possible), and Clubs (anything from $300 upwards). Pledges only are required at this stage, and in US Dollars.
Our District has made its pledge – now we need clubs to step up and make their pledges
The Grant will provide a range of sophisticated medical equipment for Decks 3 & 4 of the new ship; hospital decks with six operating theatres, three infection isolation rooms, 147 ward beds, six post-operative recovery beds and four intensive care beds.
Rotary in GBI President 2019/2020 Donna Wallbank supports the Multi District collaboration in developing this opportunity and recognises the humanitarian benefits which might be gained with this excellent initiative.
Be part of this exciting venture that will change the health of a whole continent!
