The RCNS has jumped in to help with the Rotary effort to supply urgent health supplies to India.
Kathryn Vance drew our International Service Cttee's attention to the initiative (see the "Read more ..." tab below). Due to the immediacy of the situation our Club decided to act quickly. A discussion was held and a motion was agreed upon by email. The RCNS contribution of US$1000 will purchase one concentrator. The money will be going to the Rotary Leadership in India, where the concentrators will be purchased; they will ensure that they are delivered appropriately. These machines produce oxygen from the air and never go empty. At the time of this writing,  about 10 District 7090 clubs had already joined the effort.
The following message appeared in May 1 District 7090 newsletter; District Governor Frank Adamson wrote in part..
As you know India is in a crisis and running out of beds and oxygen.  And, sadly, Rotary International President-Elect Shekhar Mehta is hospitalized with COVID.  Our prayers for a speedy recovery go out to him and his family. In light of this, the District Leadership and the District Foundation Committee have agreed to donate $10,000 from our DDF reserve and to challenge those clubs who have the capacity to donate $500 - $1,000 USD to purchase oxygen concentrators for India.  A combined donation of $20,000 will buy 20 of these units.  Your donation would be most appreciated.
