The Rotary Club of Norfolk Sunrise is thrilled to announce that they have been successful in receiving a US$77,000 = CA$103,000 grant for their project Prevention of Retinopathy in Premature Babies from Rotary International.  The project is part of the Club’s long affiliation with Operation Eyesight in India and will fund the purchase of a vehicle and the specialized equipment needed to diagnose and treat retinopathy in newborn babies.  The club has raised over CA$60,000 for Operation Eyesight over the last few years and the rest is provided by Rotary District and Rotary International funds.  
Rotary project leader Jim Dawson commented that; "premature babies must be diagnosed and treated within two weeks of birth so the vehicle will allow specialists to travelling to four hospitals in the Moradabad, India area” (why India, you ask? our logic is at this link)
An article about a family in India that was able to benefit from this preventative work is given at this link. This same story is shown at the 'Read more ...' tab, in a pictorial story-board format.
BZ to the RCNS International Service Committee!
