Lane Cove Rotary Club News
 
Dear Jenny – I am back from Congo, after a very productive trip. Glad to be sleeping in my own bed again, and to have electricity and good plumbing!
 
Attached is a small acknowledgement of our thanks to you and Hunters Hill Private Hospital for providing so many hospital goodies. These were given to Lotumbe hospital (Equateur Province) and the photo is held by Dr Germain Wassia, the hospital’s medical director. He is surrounded by the other doctors and a nurse on his team; all have benefited from Vera Sistenich’s emergency medicine training and DAK Foundation’s medical equipment. When I told them about you and your involvement with Rotary, they quickly said, “We should have a Rotary logo in the photo, too!”  They were so touched to know that nurses like you care about them in Congo.
 
We had a successful Rotary tree planting day, too, with a young Congolese Rotarian leading the way. He spoke to each of the village schools describing Rotary’s community service and the importance of them joining in the fight against climate change. It was huge fun, with the kids singing as they planted.
 
If you’d like to see the (long!) trip report, or some photos of the tree planting just let me know.
 
With appreciation, Lucy
