The Rotary Club of Stratford is doing their part to help children in the hospital in the Congo.
They recently announced they are taking part in a project in the Democratic Republic of Congo called “Solar powered oxygen delivery:A solution for childhood pneumonia.”
The project, according to the club, involves establishing solar power for two hospitals in the northern city of Butembo.
Each hospital will receive a bank of solar power panels and 10 years of maintenance in the fight against pneumonia.
Rotary International has approved the project and the Rotary Club of Stratford is donating around $11 thousand with other contributions from partners including the Federal Government bringing the total of the project to roughly $76 thousand.
