Rotary Project 2009-2010

After watching a presentation Tejal and Ela Pandya made at a Rotary Club of Porterville meeting, the then President, Mr. Wayne Foltz contacted PFF with a desire to undertake a Rotary International Matching Grant project. He was interested in providing medical equipment to the Shamlaji Hospital. In order to accomplish his goals, PFF member Ela Pandya identified and reached out to a Rotary Club near Shamlaji Hospital, Rotary Club of Himmatnagar. After many phone calls and emails that took to facilitate the dialogue and fulfilling the documentation requirements, the process that started in April 2009 game to fruition in October 2010. A total grant of $45652.00 was granted for the purchase of digital X-ray machine, a cell counter for the laboratory to analyze.

In this project PFF's contribution was only that of a facilitator bringing the two Rotay Clubs together for the benefit of the tribal residents of remote regions of Gujarat. We appreciate the opportunity to be a part of such generosity on the part of Rotary International and the selfless and much-needed service provided by Shamlaji Hospital.
