Posted on : 14-07-2016 | By : Allan | In : News

The 2016 RYLA course was held at Castle Head, near Grange over Sands between the 2nd and 8th July 2016. The course involved all the usual activities, team building through ghyll scrambling and climbing, an overnight spent under canvas, raft building and racing the other teams and organising a car wash to raise funds for RIBI. Our candidate, Alistair James , thoroughly enjoyed it and was proud that his team won the raft race and raised over £160 washing cars.

ROTARY CLUB OF LANCASTER PROJECT TO FUND TWO UGANDAN STUDENTS TO STUDY MEDICINE IN UGANDA

Posted on : 01-07-2016 | By : Allan | In : News

IMG_0209
There is a great shortage of qualified doctors in Uganda and even greater shortage of those prepared to work in country areas. In Kamuli District (Pop 590,000) there are 6.

Salaama and Richard were students at St John Bosco Secondary School, Kamuli, where Gill Jenkinson – a Rotary Foundation volunteer – worked between 2001 and 2010, while Rtn Tim worked for Rotary Doctorbank at the nearby hospital. They have qualified as General Nurse and Assistant Physician but a respected doctor in Kamuli suggested that we try to get scholarships for them to qualify as doctors so that they could be of more significant service to the community. Both have held a dream to work “up country” and have guaranteed to do this. There is no government funding available to them.

We have cooperation from the Rotary Club of Kyambogo Kampala, the Medical Superintendent of Kamuli General Hospital, and some offers of private sponsorship.

This project addresses at least 2 of the “areas of focus” and is sustainable and of benefit to the community.

We have been successful in gaining a Rotary Foundation District grant. Richard, the first student has been doing well at Busitema Universityand is now to start his 4th year. This year Salaama started her course at Kampala International University and we now have a TRF District grant of half the cost for both students.
RC Lancaster is committed to the project but we need other support to keep the project viable. The cost per student is about £2500 per year. An amount of, say,£100 towards the cost would be gratefully received to supply much needed medical care in a poor rural area.

The students have expressed their deep gratitude to Rotary for this life changing opportunity.
