Final day for our visitors from Soldier On, the organization supporting veterans and their families.
This project fundraisers through RC Geelong and with help from East Timor Roofing, they have supported the building of a new Car Port to shelter our vehicles from the punishing sun, allowing patient to board our mini bus for hospital visits and allowing shelter from the rain for staff moving from building to building.
The delivery truck from East Timor roofing could not get into the yard due to low. Electricity Cables so had to drop the carport roofing across the road. Team BPC had to handball the material into the site. Many thanks to ETR for their support of this project with Soldier On and Rotary Club of Geelong and with personal support from RC Dili members.
Finally the team also handed over 3 large bags of use full medical consumables, including gloves, gauze, dressings, syringes and disposable bed covers.
An unplanned plus from this group activity was a painting team refreshing our maternity ante natal department, a cementing of some perished rendering and an offer of marketing support and a training session on branding, as well as an impromptu kitchen hygeine session from a former RAAF kitchen manager.
Dr Dan and our staff appreciated the work of our new friends and we hope to see the soldiers again soon.
