WELL DONE DEEPINGS ROTARY !
The Rotary Club of the Deepings raises £4,000 for the Mustard Seed Project in Mgongeni, Mombassa
When you think of a school probably the last thing you would think about is a cesspit. However good sanitation is vital to protect against preventable diseases and so provide a safe environment in which children can learn. Both sanitation and education are areas of focus for Rotary so this project hits two targets.
With the aid of a matching District Grant from Rotary Foundation (which is our own charity) it meant that the funds raised through our Club could do so much more. In fact as the name suggests the total was double what we could have put in from our Club.
The cesspit has now been successfully installed which means that the teachers and students can concentrate on the development of the young people - the school has 250 students.
It was only with the aid of the Foundation Grant that we could do this, one of the key things about such grants is that it is overseen by Rotarians in the country to which the monies are going so we can be sure that 100% of the funds goes to the cause for which it is intended.
It is brilliant to see what a difference such help can make.

Spirometry is a simple test used to help diagnose and monitor certain lung conditions by measuring how much air you can breathe out in one forced breath.
It is carried out using a device called a Spirometer, which is a small machine attached by a cable to a mouthpiece. Spirometry can be performed by a nurse or doctor at your GP surgery, and the results are fed through the system for immediate action. Spirometry can be used to help diagnose a lung condition if you have symptoms of a problem, your doctor feels you're at an increased risk of developing a particular lung condition, it may be ecommended if you have a persistent cough or breathlessness, or if you're over 35 and smoke.
Conditions that can be picked up and monitored using spirometry include:
Asthma – Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) – Cystic fibrosis - Pulmonary fibrosis.
