Del's Shipping Container Appeal

$151 of $8,000 goal

Raised by 7 people in 21 months
We are the Rotary Club of Runaway Bay, Queensland and Del is our International Aid Director who is absolutely focused on providing lifesaving help to the people of Papua New Guinea (PNG)

We are urgently raising funds to pay for the costs of sending a shipping container to PNG.  The container is packed with donated medical equipment from local hospitals. The equipment is desperately needed in the remote areas of PNG.  This vital humanitarian aid will save and transform the lives of the people of PNG

The container will also be stacked with 'Birthing Kits' which allow mothers to give birth on clean plastic sheets rather than dirt floors thus reducing the risk of infections.  The Kits also include other essential items - razor blades, string and rubbers gloves which allow the village birthing assistant to help mothers have a safer birth for their baby.  We now ensure that the Birthing Kits also include clothes to wrap new born babies to protect them from the elements, so the complete kit is now called a 'Birthing Bundle.'  These basic medical supplies can reduce the statistics of one-in-28 mothers and babies dying during childbirth.

We have a full container ready to ship so our need is immediate.

We have local contacts with other Rotary Clubs in PNG who ensure that the equipment and bundles reach the most needy recipients and organisations.

In most cases, this is the only form of assistance the people of PNG will ever receive. There are no jobs; no Social Security; no money.  

Be in no doubt that this donated medical equipment and Baby Bundles provided by Rotary Humanitarian Aid saves lives, and is immensely appreciated by the PNG peoples.
