Rotarians are looking to change the world – with the motto Service Above Self, Rotarians believe the world could be happier, healthier, and more peaceful, by creating a better world through service. Embracing humanity and the commitment to community service, The Rotary Club of East Nassau President Adam Darville joined fellow Community Service Committee members Gavin Christie, Chairman and Past President Michele Rassin to present essential medical supplies and equipment to Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre.
The medical supplies, valued over $5,000 will be distributed to the wards and include wheelchairs, blood pressure monitors, pulse oximeters, manual and electric patient lifts, slings, thermometers, otoscope – ophthalmoscope sets, bath seats and other much needed supplies provided at cost by local medical supplier Ports International.
