Rotary donates mobile health clinic in Cook Islands

DEAR EDITOR, I would appreciate you giving some coverage to this story since the provision of a mobile health clinic is much needed locally in view of the state of many of the nation’s run-down and decaying rural health clinics.

Quoting Radio New Zealand – June 20, 2018; “The Rotary Club of Rarotonga has handed over the keys of a new mobile health clinic to the Cook Islands Ministry of Health today.

“The clinic is housed on board a refurbished bus which will replace 27 village medical centres dotted around Rarotonga when it begins service next week.

“It is the culmination of nearly two years work by Rotary clubs in New Zealand, Rarotonga and around the world.

“Members of Masterton South Rotary in New Zealand are responsible for the purchase and fit-out of the bus which includes a machine for heart monitoring and a centrifuge for blood testing.

“It will provide medical care, blood donor services, health education and awareness for many of the island’s 13,000 people.” Copyright@2018. Radio New Zealand.

Yours sincerely
