Report on Meeting 3298

Meeting 3299


Container of Medical Equipment for Uganda

John Nelson Opio from Uganda along with John from the Victor Harbour Rotary Club have been able to raise $10,000 to purchase surplus Medical Equipment from the old Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH). They have also purchased a 40foot container to ship the equipment in back to Uganda.
The population in Uganda is 40 million and 1/3 of these people have to walk more than 5 kms for basic medical help. Many of the countries people die from preventable illnesses with many dying from maternity issues. Unfortunately Uganda is a poor country due to the decades of war and the poorer you are the more illnesses you have to attend with.
What little medical equipment they have in Uganda at the moment is very old and most does not work properly.
A lot of the equipment has been donated by the RAH and will surely be a much needed and welcome gift. This equipment will have a great impacted for the lives of many in Uganda.
The container is currently at sea and should arrive in Uganda on the 7th April.

In 1996/97, he was elected as President-Elect but because of his transfer did not take on the President position.

Peter is well known to Club members for his dedication to duty.
Peter would want me to also acknowledge the role of his wife, Rosemary for the commitment and time she put into The R C of MB.
Rosemary supported Peter through his various roles; in the use of technology to produce the Program and was tireless in her efforts with catering and other duties.
Peter has been hampered by health issues and requested President David to retire. David thought that we still needed Peter and that Peter was important in his role.

Magdalina Graduation

Dear All at Rotary Club of Murray Bridge

We are just months away from Magdalina’s Form 6 graduation from The School of St Jude and the completion of her Secondary academic scholarship.

The Form 6 Graduation will be happening on Saturday of 25th May 2019 at our secondary school Usa River campus just outside Arusha.

With less than 2% of students in Tanzania completing their secondary education, we invite you to join us in recognising this incredible achievement and what it symbolises for both Magdalina and her family. 

At present, our Form 6 students are getting ready for their coming final examinations; a challenge that Magdalina has been able to embrace because of your generosity and dedication towards her education.

If you’d like to wish Magdalina congratulation, please feel free to reply to this email before Monday 20th May and we will pass on your congratulations and best wishes. 

If you are joining us for the graduation event, we look forward to welcoming you to St Jude’s in May.

Even when our Form 6 students have been very busy preparing for the National Examinations, we made sure to capture a few final shots of them in their St Jude’s uniform. Attached is a photo of Magdalina in the final days as a secondary student at St Jude’s.

Best wishes,

The School of St Jude
We're just around the corner!
Hi all
Get ready Adelaide, Godwin and I are coming your way! Be sure to get along and see us at the main event happening in your area - it's free but tickets are almost gone!
I’m especially excited this year because I'm travelling with an exceptional St Jude’s graduate who I can’t wait for you to meet. Godwin is an aspiring electrical engineer who has overcome so much in his journey out of poverty and will soon be on his way to university.
He'll be sharing with you his inspiring story and showing you firsthand the impact you are making here in Tanzania! Read more about Godwin's story.

Please help us to spread the word, tell your friends to come along too so they can learn about St Jude’s and what we're achieving.
We can't wait to see you!
