East Cooper Breakfast, North Charleston-Breakfast, and Lake Murray-Irmo Clubs are participating in Global Grant 1523745 for Early Childhood Development Training with Westville Club, South Africa, District 9370.  The Clubs submitted their respective funds in March 2015 to assist The Westville Club in working with a local organization, Feed the Babies.

Feed the Babies works with approximately 300 crèches throughout the province of KwaZulu Natal (about 50% of Rotary D9370) extending from Ezingolweni in the south to Mbazwana and Pongola in the north and inland to Emnambithi.  They currently feed approximately 9000 children daily in these crèches.



The Grant is focusing to:
·        Provide training in hygiene and appropriate precautions when administrating first aid along with basic first aid kits.
·        Train the caregivers in basic Early Childhood Development
·        Provide wall charts
·        Provide training on the making of educational toys and provide a “starter” kit for caregivers to make toys.

From Pat Campbell
Honorary member, East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club

Great news! Marlon, our Gift of Life child from Panama, had a very successful checkup today (July 9, 2013) and was released from MUSC, cleared to go home. Mrs. Pat & I went to the airport to see Delta which not only got them on a flight tomorrow afternoon (July 10, 2013) but agreed to waive all transfer fees for Gift of Life. They will also provide an escort from gate to gate to get the flight to Panama. We very much appreciated the excellent service.

Many many thanks to our host families Helen & Dawes Cooke, Judy & Jim Beery and Pat & Pat Campbell for all the love and attention to Marisin and Marlon. Of course we can never send a child home without extra special thanks to our great friends at MUSC Childrens Hospital especially Dr. Scott Bradley, Dr. Andy Savage, Cathy Rubinstein, Jennifer Reeves & Robin Ohlinger. They make this whole thing work like a charm.
Tomorrow’s schedule:  Delta flight 1730 to Atlanta   Departs Charleston  1:55 pm     Arrives Atlanta    3:06 pm
                                 Delta flight 393  to Panama  Departs Atlanta        5:45 pm    Arrives Panama City  8:51 pm
Please stop at the airport if you have time tomorrow an hour or so before flight time to wish a goodbye.
