HEALTH & EDUCATION REPURPOSING ACTIVITY
 
The restructured Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS), Health & Education Repurposing Activity (HEERA) – formally Donations in Kind regularly needs assistance from clubs and club members to assist with sorting and preparing equipment and general items for shipment to developing nations and other areas of need.
 
Although this work is on-going currently throughout February and March we have urgent need of assistance by 4 – 6 volunteers on Tuesdays & Thursdays for sorting and packing hospital linen for a project in Timor Leste’ and preparing hospital beds and other equipment for projects in the Northern Province of Sri Lanka.
 
The role of HEERA is to assist Australasian Rotary Clubs and other humanitarian organisations to access redundant health and educational equipment in our society and to sort, package and transport these items to communities locally, nationally and internationally where they are in great need. Whether it is for your own club project or not, assisting at HEERA is a great way of fulfilling Club International Service ideals. By your efforts a disadvantage person or community somewhere in the world will benefit with higher health or educational advantages.
 
The activity is open regularly on Tuesdays and Thursdays between the hours of 10:00am and 2:00pm for this purpose and some Saturdays for loading containers.
