APPEALS

"Namutumba" : Emmeline 


Rotarian Deborah Wesonga of the Rotary Club of Jinja and former head of Kisiki Collage in  Namutumba,  a town that Ross-on-Wye is twinned with in Uganda, has been in contact as her 29 year old daughter Emmeline has a potentially terminal brain aneurysm

 

Emmeline is in need of an urgent operation but Uganda does not have the facilities, therefore she has been transferred to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota USA for assessment
 

Cost of treatment is clearly a problem, Debora has raised 60% by asking friends and family, but is in need of a further £8000+

  • Many of the former and present pupils of John Kyle High School (JKHS) will have had contact with Emmeline during school project connections. Through events such as non-uniform day, JKHS have been able to pledge £2500+
  • Ross Rotary have also through donations so far raising £1600+ all of which can be transferred to the USA to assist with medical costs

There is still an obvious shortfall

Ross Rotary have added a Charity Donation button to our website and social media presence, specifically for this cause. Please consider gift aiding any donation made where possible, as this will boost the amount raised from Ross-on-Wye residents and those further afield

CAMPAIGNS

“Defibrillator” : Ross-on-Wye Cricket Club      

There is a Defibrillator located inside the Sports Centre at Ross-on-Wye.  However the Sports Centre is not always open.

 

Ross Rotary are campaigning to raise £1750 to provide an externally located Defibrillator at the Ross-on-Wye Cricket Club Pavilion.  This would save approximately 5 -10 mins in time if the need arose - Time is of the essence in these situations, it saves lives
